After being charged by the FA for wearing a political message, Pep Guardiola arrived at Wembley still donning a yellow ribbon.

Pep Guardiola arrived at Wembley for the EFL Cup final still wearing a yellow ribbon in solidarity with political prisoners in his native Catalonia despite being charged by the Football Association (FA) for doing so.

Guardiola wears ribbon in support of Sánchez and Cuixart

The Manchester City manager began wearing his ribbon after Jordi Sánchez and Jordi Cuixart were placed in custody as part of the crackdown that followed last October's referendum on Catalan independence – a poll the national government in Madrid deemed to be illegal.

He was charged by the FA on Thursday and given until March 5 to respond to the charge, with the final with Arsenal the first of three games before that deadline.

But the action by the governing body has not deterred Guardiola from wearing the ribbon at the home of the FA, with City fans also choosing to do so in solidarity with the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.
