The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) overturned Manchester City’s the two-year ban from European competition, imposed by UEFA, and neither Jurgen Klopp nor Jose Mourinho are content with the ruling.
Liverpool’s coach stressed that the decision could lead to the creation of an elite club competition as only a few teams can afford to spend large sums on transfers in the future.
“I am happy that City can play in the Champions League but I don’t think it was a good day for football yesterday, to be honest,” Klopp said.
“Just because I think FFP is a good idea.
“It’s there for protecting teams, protecting the competition.
“That was the idea at the start, that nobody overspends and stuff like this.
“If you start doing it so that nobody cares anymore, the richest people or countries can do what they want to do and that would make the competition really difficult.
“I think that would automatically lead to a world super league, with like 10 clubs.”
For his part, Tottenham Hotspur coach Jose Mourinho pointed out that the rules should be followed and those guilty should be punished.
“It’s a disgraceful decision,” Mourinho noted.
“If Man City is not guilty of it, to be punished by some millions is a disgrace.
“If you’re not guilty you’re not punished.
“In the other way, if you’re guilty you should be banned.
“In any case, it’s a disaster.
“In this moment, we are speaking about Man City but in the past, other clubs were in a similar situation, and you know the results of it.
“So I think it’s better to open the circus door, and let everybody enjoy.
“And go inside for free, come out, go inside again, do it with freedom.”
