“Disgraceful”: Jose Mourinho launches attack at CAS for overturning Man City’s ban

first_img Source: Daily Mail When asked if City got lucky with the decision, Mourinho added: ‘Maybe they got unlucky. Maybe they don’t deserve to be punished by one single pound and they were punished in eight or nine million pounds. Maybe they were unlucky.’CAS released their verdict on Monday morning, and said: ‘Most of the alleged breaches reported by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the CFCB (UEFA’S Club Financial Control Body) were either not established or time-barred. f Jose Mourinho has launched a blistering attack on the outcome of the Manchester City court case, claiming Financial Fair Play is now dead and that football might as well throw open the ‘circus door’.The Tottenham boss hit out at the verdict delivered on Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to revoke a two-year ban from UEFA competitions but still fined City £9million for failing to cooperate.Mourinho was perplexed with why City were fined £9m if they were ‘not guilty’ before suggesting that if they were guilty, then their ban from UEFA’s European competitions should be upheld.“In any case it’s a disgraceful decision,” Mourinho said in his Tuesday press conference when asked about CAS’s verdict.“If Man City is not guilty of it, to be punished by some million is a disgrace, If you’re not guilty you’re not punished,” he continued.“In the other way, if you’re guilty you should be banned.“So it’s also a disgraceful decision, in any case, it’s a disaster,“If you’re not guilty, you don’t pay, I’m not saying Man City is guilty, I’m saying if you’re not guilty you don’t pay.”“You are not punished, even with a pound.“I know that money is quite easy for them but it’s just a principle.“Why are you paying eight or nine million pounds if you are not guilty?” he inquired.last_img read more
