Manchester United owner Avram Glazer has said "we've always spent the money" as he finally answered a question about the club's transfer business.
The American billionaire and his family have owned the Red Devils since 2005 but have been heavily criticised by the club's fans since, with a number of protests from supporters during their time as owners. Following the end of the Premier League season, Glazer was confronted at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland by Sky News reporter Paul Kelso.
Kelso hounded Glazer over the club's performance this season and questioned him as to whether the Glazers would invest in the squad this summer.
This ultimately led Glazer to claim "we've always spent the money necessary to buy new players" after Kelso had asked whether he would be able to invest in new players for next season.
Glazer had earlier replied: "I don't think this is the time to talk about that," after being asked whether he was disappointed with United's season.
Kelso pushed the 61-year-old for an answer by reiterating that "the fans are very disappointed". Glazer responded by admitting: “It is a disappointing season. It’s disappointing for everyone but we’re going to work hard to make next season a better season.”

On whether new manager Erik ten Hag is the right man to do that, he added: “That’s why we hired him. He’ll do a great job.”
Ten Hag was unveiled as the club's new boss on Monday as he begins his reign in charge, replacing interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who now moves into an advisory role at Old Trafford.
United ended the season in sixth place under Rangnick, who took over in December, with their lowest points tally in the Premier League era.
On top of their record lowest points tally, United broke several other unwanted records this season, including conceding the most goals in a 38-game season by the club in Premier League history after letting in 57 across the league campaign.
As a result of their poor season, United will also play in the Europa League next season instead of the Champions League, a fate that could prove detrimental to their summer transfer business.
