Manchester City were fined £49m last year, but Mourinho believes a points deduction would have acted as a better deterrent. Manuel Pellegrini’s side continued to spend big in the recent January transfer window, signing Wilfried Bony in a £28m deal.
Mourinho, who was quoted by BBC Sport, said: “I don’t think a team can be champions when you are punished because you didn’t comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP).
“I enjoy the challenge of the English competition. It’s a good challenge. The only thing that is not nice is that you compete against the ones who don’t follow the same rules.
“Our work to keep the team strong, with possibility to compete against the ones financially more powerful or against the ones who don’t care and don’t respect Financial Fair Play… we had to work very, very hard.”
