Sheikh Mansour: Man City have unlimited ambition

Manchester City's ambitions have no limit, says owner Sheikh Mansour. City ambitions are 'large and unlimited' according to Blues owner Sheikh Mansour, who added in a rare public statement that the club is only part way though its 'upgrading' process.

Speaking at the United Arab Emirates University he said: "Ambitions are large and unlimited," before adding that the Blues successes so far were only 'part of the upgrading of the club to the ranks of those that can compete at tournaments in England and Europe'.

He said: "The investments are not just to buy players, as some believe, but to establish an academy to develop and train young people on a global level and the development of football in the city of Manchester in general.

"This is a good opportunity for the academy to expand the development of young players which will reduce future spending on buying players."
