Jose Mourinho wants to know if Manchester City’s UEFA ban and possible Premier League punishment make him 2018 league champion with Manchester United?

Jose Mourinho has weighed in on the great debate about Manchester City and their FFP punishment.

Mourinho did not discuss if it was fair or not. He did not even give an opinion of the events that have transpired.

In an interview reported by Goal, the Portuguese tactician was asked about the situation at Manchester City. The former Chelsea manageris all business and quite simply wants to know how it affects him.

He said:

“My view is that I didn’t lose one single minute analyzing what UEFA and FIFA have to analyze.”

“If I go into that analysis I have to ask if the team that finished second in 2018 is going to be champion, yes or no?”

“That would be interesting. But jokes apart, I just wait calmly.”

The events for which City have been punished are alleged to have taken place between 2012 and 2016. It seems unlikely that it will have a retrospective effect on the 2018 league title.

However, Jose is waiting patiently.

His greatest achievement may become even greater!
