Leeds chairman Bates warns Premier League's billionaires: Only one of you can win title

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates has warned the Premier League's billionaires: you all can't buy the Premier League.

Roman Abramovich bankrolls Chelsea and Middle East money is piling into Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Malaga.

Leeds chairman Bates told The Sun: "What will happen when two or three more come on the scene and put money in?

"You'll still have only one title, one FA Cup, Carling Cup, Champions League and Europa League.

"Money won't buy success for everyone, will it? I fear there'll be a lot of disappointed billionaires."
