Zenit St Petersburg coach Dick Advocaat feels further investment is needed if his side are to compete on the same level as the likes of Bayern Munich.

The Russian side earned a 1-1 draw against Bayern in their UEFA Cup semi-final first leg at the Allianz Arena on Thursday, a result Advocaat was pleased with given the difference in resources between the two clubs.

"Quite simply, we do not have the same options that Bayern do," he explained. "Bayern were able to play in Frankfurt last weekend with eight different players to those who played tonight, yet they were still able to win 3-1."
