Manchester United can still compete with Manchester City, insists Gill

Manchester United chief executive David Gill has insisted that the club can still compete with Manchester City despite the financial advantage held by the new Premier League champions, the Guardian has reported.

Gill pointed to United’s experience of battling Chelsea as evidence that City’s domination is not guaranteed, arguing that many people believed the money of Roman Abramovich put the London club in a position to dominate the league but United were able to topple the oligarch. He said: “Abramovich bought Chelsea, he came in 2003 and they won the title in 2005 and 2006. Everyone was saying: ‘This is it, Abramovich and Chelsea are going to be there for 10 years.’ It doesn’t happen like that.

City snatched the title from United in the most dramatic fashion imaginable, a last-gasp brace of goals from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero that took the trophy to the Etihad Stadium. With City losing 2-1 to Queens Park Rangers on the final day and United leading Sunderland by a single goal it appeared the red side of Manchester would be celebrating until Dzeko and Aguero intervened. The two sides ended the season level on points but City won the title with a better goal difference.
