Guardiola to wear yellow ribbon when City face Basel

  Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will wear the yellow ribbon on the touchline again as City welcome Basel in the second leg of their Round of 16 UEFA Champions League encounter on Wednesday. Guardiola accepted a charge by the FA on Monday for wearing the ribbon in his sides shock 1 nil defeat to Wigan in the FA Cup. The ribbon worn in support of imprisoned politicians in Catalonia is prohibited by the FA during matches due to the political symbol it represents. However, the gesture is permitted by UEFA, and whilst wearing the ribbon in the course of his pre-match news conference, Guardiola said: "The FA have rules. They apply them, I accept them. I have to. That doesn't mean I have to agree." READ: Ramires expresses desire to return to Chelsea, dismisses Inter rumo...
