Former Manchester United defender, Mikael Silvestre, claims United are a club apart from City, despite their recent success.

They just buy trophies,’ Silvestre told Press Association Sport. ‘United are all about growing players. City buy multiple stars and shut the door to the youth system. United have more courage. They are a club with a family spirit.Those who come through the ranks absorb the mentality, the history of the club so they show the heritage in their performances.’
