Mourinho hits out at ‘disgraceful decision’ to overturn Man City ban

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has blasted the “disgraceful decision” to overturn a two-year European ban imposed on Manchester City for allegedly breaching Financial Fair Play.

City were banned from competing in the Champions League or Europa League competition by UEFA in back in February.

Mourinho is among those to have been left shocked by the ruling from CAS, with confusion continuing to rise as mixed messages are fed out over the decision to lift the ban.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United boss pointed out that if City were guilty of enough to warrant a fine, then the original ban should have stood.

Mourinho told reporters of the Man City ruling: “In the case it’s a disgraceful decision because if City are not guilty of it then you are not punished with 10m.

“If you’re not guilty you shouldn’t have a fine. If they are guilty the decision is also a disgrace and you should be banned from the competition.

“I don’t know if Manchester City are guilty or not but either way it’s a disgraceful decision.”

Mourinho added on the approach Spurs will take: “Spurs is Spurs and I don’t think Spurs change this mentality and in this aspect it’s more than correct.

“I’m happy with the way we act here. I think it’s the end of Financial Fair Play.”

Klopp is another person to have questioned the future of FFP after seeing UEFA’s authority undermined, with the Liverpool head coach conceding that the events of Monday was not a good day for football.
