Alan Brazil aims jibe at Spurs over 'cost per trophy' on Twitter

Carling Cup Final

The radio presenter has used Jose Mourinho's recent point against Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Tottenham forward and current radio host Alan Brazil has used Jose Mourinho's recent point about 'buying titles' against his ex-club on Twitter.

Indeed, Chelsea boss Mourinho recently criticised his Premier League rivals by suggesting they are trying to buy their way towards league success. The blatant hypocrisy in that statement barely deserves mention...

But Brazil has taken to social media to investigate, so to speak, and concluded that Manchester United have spent the least in terms of 'cost per trophy,' with Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool following behind in that order when it comes to spending since 2004.

Tottenham, however, have spent £531 million per trophy, leading the radio presenter to aim a jibe at the north London side's 'expensive Carling' Cup.

It's certainly intriguing to see how much Spurs have spent over the years compared to their relative lack of success. But there are, of course, a number of factors that skew the findings. At the same time, the north London side have been forced to sell plenty of their best talent - Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and more. Other teams, meanwhile, have needed to spend less due to their existing squad superiority.
