Man Utd chief Gill: We'll treat Man City like Abramovich's Chelsea

Manchester United chief David Gill says there's no panic at Old Trafford over Manchester City's spending power. Gill thinks United are well-equipped to deal with their latest setback.

"When you go back to when Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003 and they won the title in '05 and '06, and everyone said: 'this is it, Abramovich and Chelsea are going to be there for 10 years' and (now) it's nothing like that," Gill said.

"Whilst the season clearly did not end on the best note we still ended up on 89 points, the title hasn't been decided on goal difference before.

"We'd all recognise we underachieved in Europe this year given what we'd achieved the previous years but from a league perspective we're happy with what we've done."
