“We can spend money because we have managed the club well. Let’s not forget the amount of money spent is not a guarantee of success.
“We have to be clear what we understand as a big signing. Is [Rob] Holding a big signing for you or not?
“When you buy a player for £40million, everybody will have at the start a positive judgement. When you buy him for £2m, he can’t be good?
“That means a big signing is not necessarily linked with the amount of money spent.”
