Jose Mourinho reacts to UEFA ban on Manchester City

Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has responded to the UEFA ban on Manchester City.

The Portuguese raised the chance of Man City being stripped the 2017-2018 Premier League title and granted to Manchester United.

Mourinho was the manager at United in 2017-2018 season when City won the title.

UEFA on Friday banned Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City from all European competition for two years and fined £25million for “serious” financial fair-play breaches.

Premier League is likewise said to set up their own investigation concerning the champions’ financial irregularities which could lead to deduction of points and strip of titles.

Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Sunday move them up to fifth which will currently qualify them for a Champions League place if City’s intrigue against UEDA’s choice is dismissed.

“I have to ask if the team that finished second in 2018 is going to be champions,” Mourinho said.

“Truly or no? That would be interesting but joking apart, I just wait calmly. Fourth or fifth, I just think about doing the best we can.

“The more points we can improve position we can get. Toward the end of the period we’ll see where we are. If we are sixth or seventh, then it doesn’t matter if the fifth goes to Champions League.

“From what I got is that Uefa punish them but they have the chan

ce to appeal.

“I think until the appeal finishes, Manchester City have the benefit of the doubt. In the end of the process we will see if they are punished or not.”
