City released a statement following the initial allegations that were made on Friday.

The leaked documents appear to show that tens of millions of pounds that was supposed to have come from the sponsors Etihad Airways was paid directly to the club by the owners.

'I trust a lot with the club, what they have done and of course we want to follow the rules, whether UEFA or Federation Internationale de Football Association or the Premier League.

La Liga boss Javier Tebas has frequently accused City of being one of those clubs guilty of "financial doping" and in its latest article, Der Spiegel wrote that the reigning English Premier League champions, one of the richest clubs in the world, had "walked all over the FFP rules", a claim that is bound to provoke considerable concern among City's European and domestic rivals.

"They [the club] do what we have to do".

'Believe me, I'm completely honest, I don't know what happened, because I am a manager.

"How they handle this situation, I am completely out of that".

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City will "have to live" with accusations that the club's success has been built on spending alone. I support, absolutely, the club. "But internal emails tell a different story, providing evidence of backdated contracts, illusory sponsoring payments and cavalier, "We can do what we want", business practices".

'In terms of undermining our work on the pitch, opinions are free. "In the end we have to focus on what we have to do on the pitch".

Leading the sack parade were defensive end Danielle Hunter , who had 3 1/2, and defensive tackle Tom Johnson , who had 2 1/2. Hunter also had a 32-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown that gave Minnesota a 24-6 lead midway through the fourth quarter.

When asked if his team's success could be potentially undermined by the recent allegations, Guardiola said: "I think that has been said for the last decade". If we win we are good, if we lose we accept it's not.

'That is an issue that always stays here.

In August Man City celebrated the 10th anniversary since Sheikh Mansour, a member of Abu Dhabi's ruling family, took control of the club, pouring billions into player budgets and infrastructure to turn the perennial Premier League strugglers into champions.

"When I was in Catalonia and in Germany, always I listened to the boys [saying] Manchester City has just money".

"I am inside for the last few years".

'The big clubs they have to spend on good players.

"There are incredible people working here and how professional they are". It's an incredibly professional club, they try to do the good things in the right why. But in my point of view, it is completely wrong because we work a lot in a good way.
