- Man City have been handed a two-year UEFA ban for breaking FFP rules.
- Guardiola's side have launched an appeal to either overturn or postpone the punishment.
- Guardiola seems to be confident that his side will be playing in the Champions League next season.
Pep Guardiola has no doubt in his mind that the Court of Arbitration for Sport will overturn Manchester City's two-year UEFA ban later this month.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Spaniard said: We are ready. I have a lot of confidence and trust with the people that we will be allowed to play the Champions League, because we want to be on the field during these years.
"On July 13 we will know the resolution, hopefully, for the club - all the workers, players and everyone here, staff - to try to continue growing up as a club in the next years."
Man City will learn the results of their two-year European ban appeal on Jule 13. The decision was initially expected to be announced on July 10 but UEFA don't want the date to clash with the Champions League draw.
The case is of utmost importance to Chelsea as the Blues stand to be directly affected by the outcome of the CAS's decision. Should City's ban be upheld, a fifth-place finish in the Premier League this season would be enough to secure a spot in the next season's Champions League.
