Mancini Hits Out At New Rules

Roberto Mancini has hit out at the new Premier League financial fair play rules.
Clubs will now only be able to incur losses over a three-year period of £105million, whilst those with annual wage bills in excess of £45million can only increase them by a maximum of four per cent.
Roberto Mancini: "I do not agree.
"If I am a rich man, I want to spend all my money on my team.
"We can't change this.
"If these are the rules we should work with them.
"It is normal. We need to buy good players, If you want to buy good players you have to spend money.
"This isn't only the situation for us, it is the same for every team.
"But if we work well and work quickly in February, March and April, we can find good players without spending £30 million.
"Every time Manchester City move for a player his value goes up.
"If a normal club that doesn't have a lot of money to spend wants to buy a player it might cost them £8million. If Manchester City move for the same player the club asks for £25 or £30million.
"There should be other rules for this."
