Pep Guardiola's political views will have effect on his manager career

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he will accept the repercussions from the FA for wearing a yellow ribbon in support of imprisoned Catalan politicians.

Eight men and women who once governed seven million Catalans are being held in two separate jails.

A third prison, near Madrid, holds two prominent pro-independence activists: Jordi Sànchez, and Jordi Cuixart.

The two are under investigation for sedition over a protest in September, in which a crowd The imprisonment of two prominent activists and eight former ministers is made more unusual by the fact that most of them were in the middle of a political campaign.

One of the imprisoned politician's supporters is Manchester City's manager Pep Guardiola, who had a yellow ribbon on his sweater.

Guardiola wore the ribbon at Wembley, druing the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal, last Sunday.

He was charged a week before, for wearing a political message, by the English Football Association.

Guardiola thinks that his political opinion shouldn't anger the FA, or any other football association.
