Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted a charge from the Football Association for wearing a political symbol, the English governing body announced on Monday.


Guardiola has said he wears a yellow ribbon to support imprisoned pro-independence politicians in his native Catalonia.
The FA ruled it breached their rules on kit and advertising regulations.


Guardiola said in November: "If one day in prison was already too much, look how many days they've been there now.
"Like everybody knows, hopefully, sooner or later I can stop wearing it."
