Pep Guardiola says Manchester City’s critics are “pushing” to find a reason to punish them, as the club is investigated by football’s authorities.
Uefa launched an investigation on Thursday in response to a series of claims made against the club by the German publication Der Spiegel.
On Friday, the Premier League said it was looking at City’s academy recruitment and financial matters.
“People press and push to find something wrong,” Guardiola said.
Speaking before the Premier League announced its investigation, the Spaniard added:
“They want to underestimate what you achieve.
“I am not too concerned or worried about what people say if we win the title because what happens now with Uefa, they don’t give us any credit for what we have done, believe me. I don’t care. Absolutely zero.”
