Man United Fans Will Be Jealous If Mourinho Wins Title With Tottenham – Neville
Tottenham winning the Premier League under Jose Mourinho would be the “most outstanding story” and something that would “alarm” Manchester United fans, according to Gary Neville.
A congested 2020-21 season is expected to produce a much closer title race and the lead at the top of the table has changed hands several times already.
Spurs briefly hit the summit on Sunday, for the first time in over six years, following a late 1-0 win at West Brom and they are unbeaten in the league since an opening-game defeat by Everton.
Mourinho won the Premier League three times when Chelsea manager and, while Neville does not believe Spurs will end up champions, he acknowledges the former United boss has the attacking power at his disposal to deliver a first league title for the north London club since 1961.
“I said a couple weeks ago on Monday Night Football that Spurs couldn’t win the league, and I still don’t think they can,” the former United defender told The Gary Neville Podcast.
“But I do agree with Jamie Carragher that it would be the most outstanding story to see Jose Mourinho win the Premier League with Tottenham.
“It would be something that would alarm Chelsea fans, Manchester United fans and Arsenal fans. It would be one of the great stories, because Tottenham don’t win leagues!
“He’s got the forward players to do it. You think of the strike force and the goal – it’s incredible.”
