Man City chairman ‘frustrated’ by talk of 115 charges and discusses future of Pep Guardiola

Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak says he is frustrated by people referencing the 115 charges levelled against the club.

A Premier League disciplinary commission is set to hear the case against City for allegedly breaching its financial regulations over several years.

Pep Guardiola’s side became the first club to win four Premier League titles in a row last season.

But the club’s chairman admits he has been annoyed by talk of the charges distracting from his team’s success.

“Of course it’s frustrating, I think the references are always frustrating, having it talked about the way it’s being talked about” he said.

“I can feel, of course, for our fanbase, for everyone associated with the club, to have these charges constantly referenced.

“I think we as a club have to respect that there is a process that we have to go through and we are going through it.

“It’s taking longer than anyone hoped for, but it is what it is.

“I’ve always repeated in every interview – let’s be judged by the facts and not by claims and counter claims.”

Al Mubarak also discussed the future of manager Pep Guardiola, whose current contract with the club expires after the end of next season, and admitted after his side’s title win that he is closer to leaving than staying when his deal does run out.

“This decision is always a decision that we will take together, and I have no doubt that we will find, as always, as always we have done, the right solution that works for Pep and works for us,” he said.
