are “innocent until proven guilty” over claims they breached Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, says manager .

City, seeking to complete a domestic treble in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Watford, face a inquiry.

It is understood some investigators want the club to be banned from the for a season if they are found guilty.

“I said many times I trust the club,” said Guardiola.

“If decide we have done something wrong, we will be punished.

“I know people want to find us guilty but we are innocent until proven guilty. Today we are innocent.”

City have won the and Carabao Cup this season and will become the first team to win the domestic treble in England if they beat Watford on Saturday (17:00 BST).

The club have said “the accusation of financial irregularities remains entirely false”.

Chief investigator Yves Leterme has made his recommendation but it is not known if he supports a ban.

Former Belgian prime minister Leterme, chairman of the investigatory panel of ’s independent financial control board (CFCB), and his team looked at evidence first uncovered in a series of leaks published by German newspaper last year.

The reports alleged that City broke FFP regulations by iating the value of a multi-million-pound sponsorship deal. City were fined £49m in 2014 for a previous breach of regulations.

It understood Leterme’s fellow board members firmly expressed the view at a recent meeting that a season-long ban would be a suitable punishment if City are found guilty.

said Leterme, “after having consulted with the other members of the independent investigatory chamber”, decided “to refer FC to the CFCB adjudicatory chamber following the conclusion of his investigation”.

It is unlikely any punishment for City will apply to next season’s because they could appeal, and even take their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

City could also face a transfer ban, with the Football Association, and Fifa investigating the club over the signing of youth players.
