Chelsea boss Villas-Boas has no problem spending big in transfer market

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas says he has no problem spending big in the transfer market.

Bankrolled by Russian owner Roman Abramovich, Chelsea certainly have the financial muscle to hit the transfer market.

Villas-Boas, though, insists that does not mean they should be reproached.

He said: "Any club does what is expected of them. We are able to move in the market in one way, and Arsenal are able to move in the market in another way. They can move in the market finding amazing youthful talent.

"It is almost like different cultures, ways of being. We just have to respect how people go about their business.

"I respect what he [Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger] does. If he doesn't respect what we do, there's nothing wrong with that.

"It is just his opinion, it is just two different ways of approaching the market."

Villas-Boas added: "In the end, it is just about being top of the Premier League in the table when the fixtures finish."
