Yellow ribbon 'not about independence' - Guardiola

  • SOUNDBITE (English) Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager:

    (On English FA chief Martin Glenn's comments comparing the yellow ribbon Guardiola has been wearing with symbols including the swastika)

    "He (Martin Glenn) doesn't understand what the yellow ribbon means. It's simple like that. He made a comment which is far away from what it means. It's not about independence or no independence. It's about four people and others who are in jail when they did absolutely nothing wrong.

    SOUNDBITE (English) Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager:

    (On Manchester City closing in on a place in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and the English Premier League title)

    "We are almost in the (Champions League) quarterfinals. We are almost Premier League (champions). That is the reality. That is why being calm is the best advice I can give to my players."
    SOUNDBITE (English) Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager:

    (On suggestions Manchester City is one of the favourites to win the Champions League)

    "If we qualify tomorrow (against Basel) it will be the second (Champions League quarter-final) in our whole history. So when people are talking about us being favourites it's an honour. If we weren't playing well, we wouldn't be favourites. We don't have that legacy behind us. That's why people talking about us being favourites, because we're doing really well."
