Murinho done it again

One of the most aggressive coaches in the world, Jose Murinho, has to deal with new problems. His last actions brought him a lawsuit.

Jean-Louis Dupont, the lawyer who led the famous Bosman case in 1995, will defend Jose Mourinho, which wants to escape from all of the sanctions imposed by UEFA. Mourinho was suspended 5 games after the statements made at the end of the match at Camp Nou in the Champions League semifinals.

Mourinho will be presented tomorrow in front of the board of the UEFA in Nyon: “For me there is something very important. I want to go tomorrow in Madrid until the time that I can do training with my team. I don’t want to lose a whole day for this.” said Real’s coach.

Dupont revolutionized modern football, when Bosman, a former modest player of RFC Standard Liege, who in 1995 won a trial that lasted five years, at the end of which, any players could transfer freely, free from the end of the contract within the EU.

Can Dupon help Murinho with this? But this thing is handmade with JM initials on it!


New rule in by UEFA
