Head coach “Tottenham” Jose Mourinho commented on the decision of Sports arbitration court in Lausanne, which reversed the dismissal of Manchester city for two years from European competitions:
“If Manchester city are innocent, the punishment of a few million is a disgrace. If you’re innocent, you’re not being punished. On the other hand, if you’re guilty, you should dismiss. In any case, this decision is a disaster.
I’m not saying that Manchester city are guilty. I mean that if you are not guilty, then the fine is not paid. Even the pound.
I know for them money is no problem, but still. If you are guilty, you should be suspended from participation in competitions.
I’m nobody to know they’re guilty or not. I criticize the decision. I don’t know whether the blame Manchester city or not, but in any case, this is a shameful decision”.
Previously the head coach of “Liverpool” Jurgen Klopp was delighted with the successful appeal of Manchester city.
