Jose unconcerned by United

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho claims he is unconcerned by Manchester United's early summer spending spree. Sir Alex Ferguson has already splashed out around £50million to bolster his title-winning squad with England midfielder Owen Hargreaves, Portugal winger Nani and Brazilian wonderkid Anderson. Meanwhile, the Chelsea boss has been restricted to the capture of free transfer pair Claudio Pizarro and Steve Sidwell. But Mourinho has played down United's early summer moves and claims he side has nothing to fear next season. "I'm not worried. United can only play with 11 players and if they played them all, Ryan Giggs would be out, which would make me very happy," he said. "When Chelsea were spending, everybody said we had the obligation to win. 'Chelsea are buying their titles,' they said. "Now I'm waiting to see if people put us in the last place of the title candidates as they have to put United first, Liverpool second - they haven't spent much yet but they will - and then Arsenal, Tottenham, Aston Villa and Newcastle."
