Chelsea boss Mourinho: They accused us of buying title, but Man City...?

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho denies he envies Manchester City's spending power.

It is a role reversal from the days when Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger peered across London and complained of financial doping.

"We were accused of buying the title, no?" said Mourinho. "Maybe it was because our owner was Mr Abramovich and he had just arrived in the country. Maybe people see City in a different way.

"I don't care. I don't envy the fact that they have this kind of protection. It is the way it is. No problem. In society, many things people considered wrong 50 years ago are very normal now.

"Maybe 10 years ago a huge investment in the club was something people hated but in this moment it is something people accept in a different way."
