tottenham's manager José Mourinho is very baffled by that, CAS on Monday gave Manchester City's favour in the case, where they broke the rules of Financial fair play (FFP).
Mourinho believes it is wrong to award Manchester City a penalty, if they are not guilty in the case. It tells the charismatic manager for Sky Sports.
- If Manchester City are not guilty in the case, then it is a scandal that they get a penalty of several million. If you are not guilty, people should not be punished. Conversely, should you be excluded if you are guilty. No matter what it is a disaster, says José Mourinho to Sky Sports.
- I know that money is not a problem for them, but still. I don't know whether they are guilty or not. My criticism is directed against the decision. I'm not saying that Manchester City are guilty in the case. I am just saying that you don't have to pay if you are innocent, reiterates the 57-year-old Portuguese.
Liverpool's successful manager, Jürgen Klopp, wonder about the decision.
- I am glad that the City can play in the Champions League, but to be completely honest, I don't think that it was a good day for the soccer ball, says Klopp to Sky Sports.
A third, there is something outraged that Manchester City was successful in its appeal, the former Manchester United star Gary Neville. He thus puts into question Financial the fairplay resort features function.
- I've said it before and I will say it again. I do not believe in the CFP. I think that the CFP needed to get a slap in the head. UEFA may not have such a simple disciplinary court. We have shown in several years, and they have shown that they are not able to do it right, when something is so complex, says Gary Neville for Sky Sports.
Manchester City were in February excluded from the Champions League in the next two seasons, but storklubben chose to appeal against the verdict, and on Monday could Pep Guardiola and co. so breathe a sigh of relief and rejoice that they still are allowed to participate in Europe's most prestigious tournament.
