Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is charged by the FA for wearing a political ribbon during his side's FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic.

The FA has charged Pep Guardiola for wearing a political ribbon on the touchline during his side's shock FA Cup defeat to Wigan Athletic.

The Spaniard breached the governing body's kit and advertising regulations by donning a yellow ribbon as a symbol of support for imprisoned politicians in his native Catalonia.

Guardiola was warned about the issue twice in mid-December and now faces disciplinary action for "wearing a political message, specifically a yellow ribbon".

Elsewhere, a private jet owned by the former Spain international was reportedly searched by police hunting for the fugitive former president of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont.

The former Barcelona boss has until March 5 to respond to the FA's charge.
