“Well, it won’t be easy. We’ve seen a lot of clubs in recent years spend a lot of money and not reach the top four. Everton, for example. And money is no guarantee of success.
“City and Chelsea have money, but they also have a great infrastructure within the club which has taken them many years to build.
âSo in terms of playing and financial management within the club, it’s not something that comes overnight.
“Ten years from now, it’s certainly doable if they start putting the right things in place now.”
