Pep Guardiola's side have won the biggest trophy in the country once again

Ian Wright believes it is 'unfair' on Manchester City players that the 115 charges against the club continue to hang over them in the wake of their latest Premier League title triumph.

Pep Guardiola's side won their fourth league crown in a row with a 3-1 win over West Ham on Sunday, with Phil Foden scoring twice and Rodri also on target.

City have been the best team in the land for the past few years, with the Citizens dominating the top flight.

However, in the immediate aftermath of their latest win, many fans were quick to point out the 115 financial charges that hang over the club.

It is now 15 months since the Premier League made the allegations against City, who strongly deny any wrongdoing.

It could yet be several years before the matter is resolved, with City potentially facing relegation or a points deduction if found guilty of breaching the rules.

And Wright, speaking on Match of the Day, has now provided his verdict.

The former Arsenal star believes it is 'unfair' on City players that their success is being scrutinised.

And Wright has also called on the situation to be clarified once and for all, too.

"I think it's unfair, with the uncertainty that comes around it," he said.

"It's unfair on the legacy that these players are building.

"You watch them that [Netflix] Treble documentary; the drive and determination to try and do what they've done is unbelievable.

"It's unfair that they've got all of this around them.

"The sooner they get this resolved, the better.'

Alan Shearer also spoke on the show.

And the former Newcastle star believes nothing can be taken away from City and their players, despite the questions being asked.

"It's not their fault. They just have to go out and perform on the football pitch," he said.

"The club will have to answer those charges.

"Those players have been superb and you can't take anything away from what those players and what they've achieved."

City could yet add to their growing trophy haul by the time the season is over.

They're due to face Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday, in a repeat of last year's final.

City won that match 2-1 following a brace from Ilkay Gundogan.

And another victory over their fierce rivals could see Erik ten Hag sacked after a nightmare campaign at Old Trafford.

Guardiola, meanwhile, has sensationally hinted his time at City is drawing to a close after making Premier League history on Sunday.

He admitted he was 'closer to leaving than staying', having been at the club ever since 2016.

“The reality is I am closer to leaving than staying," he confessed.

"We have talked with the club — my feeling is that I want to stay now.

“So I will stay next season and during the season we will talk. But eight or nine years? We will see.”
