Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho slams Man United over £150m transfer spend and brands FFP wrong

Mourinho raised his concerns that Financial Fair Play rules are stifling Chelsea and that the Blues were forced to sell big-name players to toe the UEFA line.
Manchester City were fined £50m this summer for failing to adhere to FFP rules, but were allowed to keep their place in the Champions League.
Chelsea splashed out over £80m on Cesc Fabregas, Filipe Luis and Diego Costa this summer, selling David Luiz and Romelu Likaku on top of Juan Mata’s departure in January.
And Mouinho told Yahoo: “In the winter [window] we sold Mata; in the summer one we sold David Luiz and Lukaku.
“So Chelsea in this moment is not a spender – Chelsea in this moment is making more money in transfers than the money we spend.
“When UEFA decided for Financial Fair Play they were trying to do this to make every team [have] equal possibilities.”
