Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that a coach needs to spend big money on the transfer of players for him to succeed.
Guardiola made this outburst while talking about his side's recent success in which they have won their case at the court of arbitration.
The outgoing Premier League champions were banned for two years for playing Champions League after they were accused of breaching the financial fair play rules.
Citizens however appealed the decision to ban them from appearing in the Champions League, and they have won the case.
And since the announcement came that Manchester City will continue their campaign in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola and his wards have been in joyous mood.

Before Manchester City's two-year ban was lifted by CAS, many big European managers kicked against what Manchester City were banned for.
Arsene Wenger was among the coaches who wanted Manchester City to be punished for what they were alleged to have done.
While speaking, Guardiola was asked about his contract, but he diverted his responses to the issue of Arsene Wenger.
''Arsene Wenger, the guy who defends perfectly Financial Fair Play should know that Manchester City was correct with what we have done and he has to spent a lot of money to be there.
"United with Sir Alex Ferguson spent a lot of money to be there. All the clubs, if you want to be on top, all the clubs (spend); if you don’t, it’s more difficult,'' Guardiola explained according to Mirror.
