Jose Mourinho trolls Man City
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has aimed a dig at Manchester City over their Champions League ban.
Mourinho was in charge at Manchester United when the Red Devils finished second in the Premier League behind City two years ago.
And the Tottenham boss has now joked United should be handed the Premier League title after City were sanctioned.
Mourinho said: “I didn’t lose one single minute analysing UEFA. They have to analyse.
“If I go into that I have to ask if the team which finished second in 2018 are going to be champions, yes or no?
“Joking apart I just think about doing the best we can. At the end of the season we’ll see where we are. If we are sixth or seventh then it doesn’t matter.
“Wolves, Sheffield United, Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton – everyone looks to the table and says ‘we can do it’ – and they can – It’s going to be very hard.
“It’s not about huge decisions or small decisions. It’s about the rules, the law, it is or it isn’t. UEFA punished them but they have the chance to appeal.
“Until the appeal process has finished, Manchester City have the benefit of the doubt. At the end of the process we will see if they are punished or not.”
Arsenal handed transfer boost
Arsenal target Gabriel has confirmed that he would be open to moving to the Premier League.
The Lille defender’s performances in Ligue 1 have attracted plenty of interest from other high bidders in Europe such as Paris Saint-Germain and Everton.
Gabriel told Telefoot when asked about a move to Arsenal: “Maybe I don’t know, but I would love to play in the Premier League.”
Lille, however, won’t let the 22-year-old go on the cheap and that is why the have slapped a £30million price tag on him.
