Burnley keeper Pope: We've shown money doesn't matter

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope believes the club have shown you don't need money to succeed in the Premier League.

The Clarets are close to securing a Europa League spot despite making a £22million profit.

"It's not far short. Budgets being what they are in football means it is very tough to break into the top six," he said.

"To even finish in top half with one like ours is hard. To be where we are, with money playing such a massive part, shows that you can achieve success without loads of it."
