Gary Neville believes Jose Mourinho’s possible Premier League title win with Tottenham would send shockwaves throughout Manchester United’s fanbase.
Spurs are enjoying the current campaign, sitting in the 2nd place of the league table, following their 1 – 0 win over West Brom on Sunday.
Neville believes the Lilywhites could win a title with Mourinho, while Red Devils’ fans will be alarmed to see that happen.
“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,” ex-United captain said on 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.”
Speaking on United’s win over Everton, he added: “I was glued to the telly from half past 11 [on Saturday] morning.
“I was thinking about the game, thinking about results leading up to the game, thinking about reports earlier in the week and thinking this needs a performance here.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needed a performance, the club needed a performance, those players needed a performance. I think United deservedly came out on top in the end. They’re just inconsistent. You think the performance against Leipzig, the performance against Paris Saint-Germain and at Goodison Park”
