Madcap Sion President Christian Constantin has told UEFA and FIFA to relocate to Libya if they throw his side out of the Europa League.
Rather than offer words of conciliation ahead of UEFA’s decision on Tuesday about fielding ineligible players against Celtic the Sion chief has gone on a fresh offensive.
“If UEFA does not comply with Swiss law as required by its statutes, the gentlemen go to Libya- simple,” he taunted after today’s Europa League draw grouped his side with Athletico Madrid, Udinese and RenneS.
UEFA and FIFA both have their headquarters in Switzerland.
After breaking a transfer ban on six summer signings FIFA banned the players from action with Pascal Feindouno and the other five missing out on the opening games of the season.
Sion got that overturned in the Swiss courts with FIFA taking that decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and warning the Swiss FA that they could be kicked out of Euro 2012 and see all of their clubs thrown out of European tournaments.
Undeterred by the consequences awaiting his club Constantin further taunted the football authorities: “I’m not crazy, I knew these people would not let go like that, UEFA can not have a monopoly on the organisation of competitions and made their own justice by flouting the decision of a Swiss judge.”
If Baron Constantin has a problem with UEFA and FIFA rules he’d be best sticking to playing in Swiss football.
Earlier today UEFA President Michel Platini spoke out on the issue saying: “What is happening there is the rules have not been respected. FC Sion has not respected the rules of the transfer ban – they signed players and then played those players.”
As well as his attacks on FIFA and UEFA Constantin has filed a criminal complaint against UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino and his FIFA counterpart Jerome Valcket
The Sion President added: “That is a constraint. I am ready for anything. If we fight, I will fight. Because I can not stand injustice and I defend my interests.
“So I am fighting against a totalitarian regime that wants to impose an injustice. That is why I attack the criminals Valcke and Infantino for threats made. “
