MANCHESTER City boss Pep Guardiola is under investigation for stirring up pro-independence supporters during the Catalan crisis.

The 46-year-old regularly appeared at multiple pro-Catalan rallies, including a speech he made on June 11 where he read out a pro-independence manifesto.

Spanish authorities view this act as ‘mobilising’ anti-governmental opinion.

“The manifesto was read by Josep Guardiola and was done so to mobilise all the supporters of independence,” an official statement read.

Guardiola’s name also appears with various pro-independent leaders including Jordi Cuixart, Jordi Sanchez, and Neus Lloveras.
