It has been claimed in Spain that the Catalan-born City boss is being probed as one of a number of high-profile figures who may have attempted to sway public opinion ahead of October's illegal referendum. Guardiola has previously voiced his support for imprisoned Catalan politicians and has worn a yellow ribbon to highlight their plight for the past two months. Asked if he was concerned about being investigated, he said: "We will see what happens." Catalonia's separatists won an overall majority on Thursday in regional elections called by Spain's government.
