Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola has said the people of Catalonia should be allowed a vote to decide whether they want to stay as part of Spain

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho does not think he would be allowed to make a political statement on the touchline like Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola has recently worn a yellow ribbon – a symbol of protest against the imprisonment of pro-independence politicians in the Spanish region of Catalonia.

He dedicated City’s Champions League win over Napoli last month to the campaigners.
