Porto to be booted out of the CL?

Recommended Posts

FC Porto at risk of being booted out of Champions League UEFA could exclude Dragons in wake of corruption scandal FC Porto are at risk of being disqualified from participation in next season’s Champions League owing to the ‘Final Whistle’ corruption scandal. The Portuguese League’s Disciplinary Committee penalised the three-time Portuguese champions with a six-point penalty and heavy fine, as well as banning club president Pinto da Costa from sporting activity for two years, for having been found guilty of attempting to bribe referees in the 2003/04 season. The penalty was largely meaningless, given that the Dragons had already won the league by a 20-point margin, but now it has emerged that the club may be thrown out of European competition as a result of their wrongdoings. It would prove a massive blow to the team, both in terms of prestige and financial rewards. The Portuguese club, along with Manchester United, hold the record number of appearances in what was formerly the European Cup since it adopted the Champions League format.
The decision hangs on a recently introduced UEFA ruling that stipulates: “to compete in UEFA competitions no club can be involved in any activity destined to combine or influence the result of a match at domestic or international level.” The exclusion of clubs found guilty of corruption is a recent addition to the UEFA regulations following the Italian “calciocaos” scandal. Milan were involved in the process and many called for them to be thrown out of the Champions League but at the time UEFA said no procedures were in place to allow this to happen. The regulations were subsequently changed.
Europe’s governing body have stated they are closely monitoring the situation. “As soon as the Portuguese Federation sends the list of clubs registered to play in next season’s UEFA competitions, we will examine the situation of the clubs in question. UEFA will only make a decision after checking that the clubs satisfy all the admission criteria,” a UEFA spokesman told Portuguese football site Maisfutebol. Should FC Porto be suspended from playing in Europe next season, it could trigger an exodus of many of their star players, such as Lucho Gonzalez, Lisandro Lopez, Ricardo Quaresma and Bruno Alves. An immediate consequence will see Guimaraes enter directly into the Champions League, with Benfica playing the final qualifying round to try and join the northerners and Sporting in next season’s competition.
still pissed they only got 6 points deduction when they were already 20 points ahead... least that will mean quaresma and co will leave.

The 6 points being taken away was an utter joke, they may aswell as left it.They need to come down hard on Porto, they've been caught red handed of match fixing, you break them you pay!Lucho Gonzalez is linked with a move to Barcelona with many others.

If Gonzalez goes to Barca, Yaya coming to Arsenal is a big possibility. Gonzalez is a straight regular.

I think the real question is even if you didn't know he'd signed, why did you 'hope' your main divisional rivals sign one of your targets?

Your first quote was this;
i hope quaresma will join chelsea , bosingwa join man utd, and lopez join arsenalshared up nicely alie
Then your second quote was this;
oh i thought they were still negotiating
So you're claiming you knew you was interested as you were negotiating.So the question is why you hoped your main divisional rivals signed someone you knew you was in for?
