Manchester City were short on trophies before they were taken over in 2008, and huge success began to come thick and fast.
Under Guardiola, they have won five Premier League titles in the last six years, having lifted the title under Roberto Mancini and Pellegrini.
They have won 10 major honours since they were first investigated over financial breaches, with a Champions League, four leagues & five domestic cups to their names.
The club are now being investigated over 115 charges of alleged Financial Fair Play breached, but they have claimed innocence since the first charge.
