Bikey warns Sunderland they can't buy success

Teams with money to spend have always ignited envy in those who do not and Sunderland is no exception.

NEWCASTLE // Teams with money to spend have always ignited envy in those who do not and Sunderland is no exception. Burnley defender, Andre Bikey has given notice to Sunderland manager, Steve Bruce, that having money to buy players like Darren Bent, Lee Cattermole and Michael Turner, as well as the ambition to gun for a top-10 finish, does not guarantee success ahead of their meeting today. "You can have money to spend on anything you want but let's see what happens on the pitch because it's about the players and the football," he said. "We've got a lot of quality ourselves and will give everything to win the game against Sunderland." Burnley v Sunderland, KO 3.45pm, Showsports 2
