Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal will not attempt to spend their way back to the Premier League summit. Speaking ahead of the League Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea, Wenger said he will refuse to spend beyond the club's means to break back into the top four having missed out on Champions League last season.
"We have financial restrictions form the banks because we have built the stadium," he said when it was put to him that Arsenal have spent less than the other clubs in the top 10 of Deloitte's latest table. "It is important we respect the financial plan. We work very hard to become richer and we achieve it. A "t the end of the day, we are a serious football club who has responsibilities and we want to spend the money we can afford. If you cannot afford, you have to say no, sorry, can't do that."
