PSG's 6-1 UCL Win To Be Investigated For Match Fixing / Guardiola Dedicates Champions League Win To Detained Catalan Separatist / Barcelona Could Join Premier League If Catalonia Gains Independence (2) (3) (4)
|Pep Guardiola Dedicates Manchester City Win To Catalonia Independence Leaders by timsTNA: 12:29am On Oct 18, 2017|
Pep Guardiola has dedicated Manchester City’s Champions League victory over Napoli to two imprisoned Catalan independence leaders.
Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez are currently behind bars in Spain as the fight for freedom continues in Catalunya.
A vote for independence on October 1 sparked controversial scenes, with the Spanish Constitutional Court having ruled the poll illegal.
Cuixart and Sanchez have been detained as figureheads of the separatist movement, with the pair being held without bail while they are investigated for sedition.
A protest on Tuesday saw thousands take to the streets of Barcelona to express their opposition to the actions of the Spanish courts.
Guardiola has now offered his support to that cause, telling reporters after a midweek fixture in Europe.
"This win is dedicated to them [Cuixart and Sanchez].
"We have shown in Catalonia that citizenship is bigger than any ideas. We hope they will be released soon."
Guardiola, as a Catalan native, has been a public supporter of the push for independence.
He has previously taken in productive spells as a player and manager at Barcelona and is one of the more high-profile figures to have joined the debate.
Some weeks back Barcelona player Gerard Pique voiced his support for Catalania independence and said he is ready to give up in the Spain football team if his statement doesn't go down well with the football authorities
