Portsmouth's administrator Andrew Andronikou has condemned the Football Association and Premier League decision to block the club's entry into next season's Europa League as “a shambles”.
“I know our chances are pretty remote if the Premier League and FA say they won't consider it, but we are still going to explore all possibilities for the club. We will go to UEFA before we admit defeat,” he said.
