Mancini critical of spending cap

Roberto Mancini has hit out at the new Premier League rules to restrict club spending in future seasons.

Teams are now limited to losing 105 million over three rolling seasons, which will harm City as they have more money than anyone else, taking away their unnatural advantage.

"I do not agree," said Manchester City's manager. "If I am a rich man I want to spend all my money for my team; it's my job. It's only my personal opinion but I don't agree with the idea in general or these rules.

"We need to buy good players. If you want to buy good players you have to spend money. This isn't only for us, it's the same for every team but we will work hard and find a different way."
