Klopp, Mourinho unhappy with court ruling on Manchester City, Guardiola snaps back

Earlier this week, the CAS (Court Arbitration for Sports) exonerated Manchester City of any charges on breaching the FFP (Financial Fair Play) rules.

Facing a two-year ban from the Champions League, the CAS found that City was not liable for any ban, but was instead fined 10 million Euros. The fine was for failing to cooperate with UEFA authorities.

‘Champions League, here we come!’

Thus, the lifting of the sanctions means City will play in the Champions League next season.

The news was, of course, welcome with joy by Manchester City fans, with rival fans crying foul.

Indeed, rival managers also felt some type of way following the ruling.

‘Bad day for football’ – Klopp

Liverpool Coach, Jurgen Klopp, while heaping praise on Man City, was critical of the outcome.

“I think the FFP is a good idea,” he told the press, “its there for protecting teams and protecting competition so that nobody overspends.”

He said losing FFP would lead to rich clubs doing whatever they want in football, making competition difficult.

“I don’t think it was a good day for football, yesterday to be honest,” he said of the outcome.

‘Decision disgraceful’ – Mourinho

Tottenham coach, Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, called the decision disgraceful.

“In the case, its a disgraceful decision because if City are not guilty of it then you are not punished with a fine. I don’t know if Manchester City are guilty or not, but either way, it’s a disgraceful decision.” He said.

Guardiola defends City

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, though, criticized those critiquing the outcome.

“I am incredibly happy for the CAS decision which shows what all the people said about the Club was not true and to defend on the pitch what we won on the pitch,” Guardiola said.

Guardiola also said that it was paramount to defend themselves when accused of any wrongdoing. Thus, people needed to stop criticizing now that the outcome is out.
