Mourinho calls for tougher penalties on Manchester City for FFP breach

Jose Mourinho has called on UEFA to provide stronger penalties to the likes of Manchester City and Paris St Germain, for breaching the Financial Fair Play rules put in place, according to the Guardian.

City have been fined around £50million for their breach of the rules this year, and been told to trim their Champions League squad to 21 players, but Mourinho has called on UEFA to introduce points deductions to offending clubs.

“Everybody knows there are fines and, if these fines exist, control exists,” said the Chelsea manager in an interview with Maisfutebol.

“But, anyway, are the fines fair? I don’t think so. In my opinion the first thing to do would be to remove points and remove titles.

If you have important capital which allows you to overcome financial fair play, if you win titles and then you are fined economically, you keep doing the same thing.

“They will take from you one or two players from the Champions League list [shrugs].

“Then, instead of 24, you go with 22. But if you’re stating that you’ll start the next Champions League with six points fewer, or you won’t play in the next edition of the Champions League and will go into the Europa League instead, it is more serious.”
