Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson claims Tottenham Hotspur will never win the Premier League
For a manager who once said in his pep talk, “Lads, it’s Tottenham”, it is no secret what Ferguson thinks of us. However, things have changed in the Premier League and Manchester United are no closer to winning the league than we are.
The legendary manager was in attendance at Newbury Racecourse this weekend where he discussed about the title chances of clubs this season. According to Ferguson, Spurs don’t have a better chance of winning the title than Manchester United this season.
This came hours before Spurs’ game against Brighton & Hove Albion where Ange Postecoglou’s men ironically scored in what is famously known as ‘Fergie time’ to get all three points, thanks to Son Heung-min and Brennan Johnson.
Postecoglou’s team weren’t at their very best against Brighton but moments of brilliance ensured they managed to get the win despite the heroics of Seagulls shot-stopper Jason Steele. The result put Spurs in the fourth position in the league, two ahead of Fergie’s Man United.
Delulu is not the Solulu, Fergie!
Speaking about the situation, here is what the Manchester United legendary manager had to say,
“No, ’61 was the last time they won it, well that’s a long time. The opposition today with Liverpool and Manchester City being so powerful in the Premier League. Even for United now, we’re having to fight.”
Now, Ferguson is very well respected for everything that he has achieved in his career in the Premier League but putting Manchester United above Tottenham in the chances to win the Premier League as things stand currently is maybe a little bit delusional.
As Spurs fans, we are practical. We know that there is a very slim chance of us winning the Premier League this season. However, it would be a stretch of imagination to say that we are never going to win it.

Under Ange Postecoglou, we seem to be making all the right decisions at the moment. The players and the fans have taken to the manager really well and things really look promising for the club. Let’s hope that indeed is the case and we find a way to win the Premier League in subsequent seasons.
