 Sion President Christian Consantin has lost a court case against UEFA Secretary Gianni Infantino and claimed that the footballing authorities are running a totalitarian state.

UEFA will decided on Tuesday if Sion are kicked out of the Europa League for fielding ineligible players including Pascal Feindouno who scored twice against Celtic.

Constantin has stepped up his offensive against the game’s powerbrokers since Thursday’s win over Celtic but has had a claim that a letter from Secretary Infantino.

The UEFA Secretary outlined to the Swiss FA that if they failed to implement the FIFA ban the national side could be kicked out of the Euro 2012 qualifiers and all Swiss clubs removed from UEFA competitions.

A Swiss judge threw out Constantin’s claim against the ‘threatening’ letter but the Sion chief was unrepentant as he prepared for his side getting kicked out of the Europa League after being drawn with Athletico Madrid, Udinese and Rennes

He warned: “With the threat of exclusion, they have set extortionate under duress- this is a characteristic of totalitarian regimes.

“A law professor who filed the lawsuit in Neuchâtel. Let’s see what the general secretary says if they are interrogated by the police.”

On Friday Michel Platini spoke out against Sion fielding ineligible players with Constantin quick to respond.

The Sion president accused his UEFA counterpart with: “I expect everything, including the worst he says. If Platini looks at the record I don’t see how he can attack us- they are forced to cobble alibis together.”
