Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is demanding more investment in his side if the club are to contest for the Barclays Premier League next season.
The Italian manager has masterminded a third placed finish in the league, which will see City qualify for the Champions League automatically, as well as winning the FA Cup, the club's first piece of silverware for 35 years.
The club's wealthy owners have invested heavily in the squad since they took over in 2008, but the former Inter Milan coach wants more of the same this summer.
"We want to buy more players to improve because we need them,” the Italian told reporters.
“If you look at last year, we were fifth. This year we have bought good players, we are third and we have won the FA Cup.
“You can spend a lot of money, but you are not sure to win. But if you don’t spend, you won’t win.
“If you can buy good players and work hard, you can win."
