Manchester United must spend big to compete with City: Mourinho

 

By Rory Dollard

Jose Mourinho claimed Manchester United will need to spend more money after dropping another two points in their faltering title challenge at home to Burnley.

United could fall 15 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City if their rivals win at Newcastle tonight following a 2-2 draw with the Clarets at Old Trafford yesterday.

It might even have been worse for Mourinho's men had Jesse Lingard not come off the bench to score twice, including a stoppage-time equaliser, after the visitors had opened up a 2-0 lead.

Responding to a question that such a gap might be unacceptable for a club of United's stature, Mourinho said: "One thing is a big club and another thing is a big football team. They are two different things.

"We are in the second year of trying to rebuild a football team that is not one of the best teams in the world. City buy full-backs for the price of strikers."

When it was pointed out United have spent heavily - roughly £286million - since Mourinho took charge, the Portuguese said: "OK, but it is not enough. The price for the big clubs is different than for the other clubs."
