Pep Guardiola has welcomed the UEFA investigation into Manchester City's spending, saying he hopes for a resolution soon to "stop the voices". 

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has promised action "very soon" after it was alleged City had used sponsorship deals to circumvent Financial Fair Play regulations.

Having been found guilty of breaching FFP rules in 2014, City would most likely face a ban from UEFA competition, but the manager did not seem concerned by the investigation.

After the 2-1 win over Watford took them five points clear in the Premier League, Guardiola said: "UEFA is doing what they are doing. If he has found something, the club will make a statement. And I like to do that because we will know exactly when we are going to finish with these voices.
