Mourinho Appeals UEFA Sanction in International Court

Madrid, May 22 (Prensa Latina) Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho will appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) the sanction imposed by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), AS newspaper reported today, quoting the British Sunday Times.

The appeal will be filed by Real Madrid, which is preparing its case with the help of lawyer Jean Louis Dupont, who gained renown with the Bosman ruling of 1995 (on regulating contracts for players in Europe).

After the first leg of the semifinals of the Champions Ligue, the UEFA imposed a five-game, 50,000-euro penalty on Mourinho for his statements about referee favors for Barcelona FC.

It is a legal battle against the UEFA that could even end up in the regular Swiss courts, AS reported.

Real Madrid will put forward that Mourinho stated what he saw as demonstrable errors by referees Ovrebo, De Bleeckere and Wolfgang Stark in the semifinals of the Champions League, which is did not harm the order of the competition or the UEFA.
