Francis Lee excited by Man City revolution

Manchester City legend Francis Lee is excited by the changes he's seen under the club's new owners.

Lee is as excited by the revolution taking place at his old club as every other City fan.

"I think it's great," the 66-year-old told the Manchester Evening News. "Everybody seems to be knocking them, saying they're spending too much money - but they are only doing what Chelsea and United have done for years.

"Those two clubs have dominated the transfer market since the start of the Premier League. They've been the most successful because they've been able to get the best players. If you've got the best players then you will win things. I never thought I'd see the day when City could out-muscle United and Chelsea in the transfer market, but when you've got owners with bottomless resources, you've got a chance.

"When you look at the quality of the squad now, it is very strong. They will take a hell of a lot of stopping to get into the top four this season."
