Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has hit back at Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who claimed that money won't guarantee success in the Premier League.
The Blues said his achievements this season prove that you don't need to spend a lot of money on transfers and also made reference to the two Manchester clubs.
However, Guardiola hit back by referring to the time he won the Champions League at FC Barcelona with eight players that came from the club's academy.
“I played with Barcelona and won the Champions League with eight guys growing from the academy,” Guardiola told reporters.
“Zero cost to win the Champions League, that’s happened.
“But all the clubs are going to spend a lot of money and you cannot forget all the players that Chelsea have that cost a lot of money.
“People think that just City spend money but all the clubs around the world, in Spain, Germany, England and Italy, they spend a lot of money.
“This summer it is going to happen again. Here spends more money than the other countries because of the media, who pay a lot of money to decide when we are going to play. That’s why there is a little bit more here.”
“But all around the world there is a lot of money to spend, even Chelsea.”
