City will play three games before that deadline - Sunday's EFL Cup final against Arsenal, a trip to the Emirates Stadium to face the Gunners in the Premier League on Thursday and Chelsea's visit to the Etihad Stadium next weekend.

He has until March 5 to respond to the charges, an FA statement said on Friday.

His support of the Catalan figures has even led to Spanish authorities checking his private plane and his daughter's vehicle.

Guardiola has been a vocal supporter of those locked up in the wake of the referendum in October 2017.

The City manager, who was born in Catalonia, has previously explained his reasons for wearing the ribbon. They want to suspend me - UEFA, the Premier League, FIFA - it's OK.

The Daily Mail says Guardiola is set to defy the Football Association and wear his yellow ribbon at Wembley on Sunday.

"I do that because in Spain for two specific people who defend something like the vote, something the people in command do not agree [with], are in prison".

The legality of the ribbon in English football became questionable, as Jose Mourinho asked in a press conference in December whether such a political message should be allowed.

The FA said in a statement that the symbol sported by the former Barcelona boss on his jacket broke its rules.

Guardiola's contract was due to expire after next season and City's top brass were told by owner Sheikh Mansour to secure an extension. In the previous match against City, the Portuguese questioned the legality of the message, saying, "I think I know how Pep feels about his country". After missing out on a trophy last season with Manchester City, Guardiola looks poised to pick some this time around.

"In August we said the same, we'll be judged for how many titles we win, for the big clubs it is always the same". The penalties would increase, however, if he keeps refusing to follow the FA's rules.
