In Mourinho’s Speech, he said:
I have to ask if the team that finished second in 2018 is going to be champions,” Mourinho said.
“Yes or no? That would be interesting but joking apart, I just wait calmly. Fourth or fifth, I just think about doing the best we can.
“The more points we can get the better position we can get. At the end of the season we’ll see where we are. If we are sixth or seventh, then it doesn’t matter if the fifth goes to Champions League.
“From what I got is that Uefa punish them but they have the chance to appeal.
“I think until the appeal finishes, Manchester City have the benefit of the doubt. In the end of the process we will see if they are punished or not.”
