Sir Alex: Man City cannot buy Man Utd spirit

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists neighbours Manchester City will never be as big as them.

Ferguson warns City that their wealthy owners will never be able to buy a spirit to match that of Old Trafford.

Ferguson said: "This is a club with so much wealth they could buy every player in the world, but can they buy a team, can they buy a Manchester United spirit?

"I don't expect City to be bigger than us. I really don't. The problem with all that money is you buy indiscriminately. Sunderland in the 1950s. The Bank of England club. Relegated. I wouldn't wish relegation on City."
