Swansea boss wants Palace relegated from Championship

Swansea City boss Paulo Sousa is insisting that Crystal Palace, currently deducted ten points for going into administration, should be relegated from the Championship. Palace and Swansea meet during the week for what should be an interesting encounter in the light of Sousa's comments.

"In England the (financial) rules are there for everyone to see and it is important to follow these rules," said Sousa.

"They give respect to everyone in football who is honest and trying to do his best. Losing points is unfair for the players and the manager, but it's also unfair for the other clubs who are working very hard to deal with contracts and other things.

"In other countries - and it is my opinion also - I would like to see not to take 10 points off, but to automatically relegate because it's unfair on the other clubs."
