Newcastle chief Darren Eales has taken a swipe at Chelsea.
Eales says they’ll always work smarter in the market compared to the crazy spending of Chelsea.
Eales told Truth Faith: “It’s not just about the money you spend – it’s about how you spend it. The weekend’s game [against Chelsea] is a perfect illustration of that. You’re in safe hands with Eddie and Dan [Ashworth] in terms of knowing what it is we’re looking for.
“The reality is we are always going to spend what we can under FFP. I can say that to you hand on heart here. The club will always be doing its best to get to where we want to get to, but we have got to make sure we do it methodically, in the right way that is sustainable.
“With Eddie Howe, it’s unbelievable to see just what he does with the squad, the way he has galvanised them. It’s really important that we keep building with that in mind. We’ve got a great pair of hands there with Eddie because he’s unbelievably good.”
