Pep Guardiola jokes he will 'call back Paul Dickov and Mike Summerbee' if Man City are relegated for financial breaches | The Sun

PEP GUARDIOLA has revealed his amazing solution to bring Manchester City back to the Premier League if they are relegated.

Man City were charged with over 100 breaches of financial rules dating back to 2009.

As a result, the club are facing relegation or expulsion from the Prem.

Speaking on the charges for the first time, Guardiola hit back at rival clubs who had already "condemned" them.

And in response to the threat of relegation Guardiola joked: "We will go to the low division, no problem.

"We have been there before. We will call back Paul Dickov, Mike Summerbee and make a good process. We will be back I'm sure."

Dickov played for the Cityzens for six years in two spells with the club.

The Scot, now aged 50, left the club just as they were taken over by Sheikh Mansour's Abu Dhabi group.

Meanwhile, Summerbee now aged 80, played for the club for 10 years between 1965 and 1975.

But Guardiola took a more serious tone when talking about rivals.

He said: "My first thought is already that we have been condemned.

"What has happened after Monday is the same as happened with Uefa. We were condemned. We have just a charge.

"Why should when they told me before they defend the accusation from Uefa, the club proved we were completely innocent, why should now be condemned?

"19 teams of the PL are accusing us without the chance to defend and the words of my chairman my CEO my owner explain everything, you know what side I am on…

"Go to the chairman, CEOs, Daniel Levy, ask them.

"These 19 Premier League have set a precedent. What they [rival PL clubs] have done to us, be careful with that.

"Be careful in the future. Many clubs can make suggestions and there are a lot of clubs that can be accused, like we have been accused."
