Mourinho: City Should Have Points Deducted

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at Manchester City while commenting on Financial Fair Play.

The Portuguese manager insisted that clubs who are guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules should be docked points as punishment for their transgressions.

“I enjoy the challenge of the English competition,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “It's a good challenge. The only thing that it is not nice is that you compete against the ones (clubs) who don't follow the same rules.

“That's the only problem. I don't think - and it's happened before - a team can be champions when you are punished because you didn't comply with Financial Fair Play.”

 When asked what the penalty should be for teams who don’t follow FFP rules, Mourinho’s answer was definitive. He concluded by stating that his club always try to spend within FFP limits.

“(UEFA should deduct) Points. Of course. I don't know (how many), “ he added.

“It was explained the profile of club (Chelsea owner) Mr Abramovich wants, with total, complete respect to the Financial Fair Play rules.”

Chelsea sold Andre Schurrle to Wolfsburg for a reported £8m profit, allowing them to buy Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina.
