Pep Guardiola accepts FA's charge over yellow ribbon

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has accepted a Football Association charge of "wearing a political message" regarding his recent displays of a yellow ribbon.

Sources told ESPN FC that Guardiola will observe the rules of the country in which he works, but he will continue to wear the ribbon pre- and postmatch as permitted.

He had until 6 p.m. on Monday to respond to charges of breaching kit and advertising regulations, and could now face a fine after a hearing is arranged.

Guardiola, who has supported calls for a referendum over Catalonia's independence from Spain, has worn the ribbon in a show of support for Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart, two members of the Catalan government who were imprisoned in October.

Pep Guardiola has accepted FA's charge over his yellow ribbon.

The charge relates to City's FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic on Feb. 19, when he wore it on the touchline.

Guardiola is free to wear the ribbon for any media appearances and news conferences but, according to FA rules, it must not be on display during the 90 minutes of play.

Sources also said that City believe there are inconsistencies in the FA's position and that it is different to the position taken by European governing body UEFA, which allows the ribbon to be worn.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn earlier said he was adamant that Guardiola was displaying a political symbol, although he later apologised for some of his comments after appearing to equate the Star of David with a swastika.
