Former United Boss Ferguson Tips City To Win The Premier League Title

He knows his stuff...


It's not something you would have heard him say very often while he was in charge at Old Trafford but Sir Alex Ferguson has tipped Manchester CIty to win the Premier League this season. 

Speaking to German magazine Kicker, the former United boss said:

"I think there's five potential candidates: Manchester City as favourites, Tottenham and Liverpool, but also Man United are still there if we get some consistency soon. Even when you are trailing by six, eight points, it's still possible to catch one or two teams. 

The rivalry and the experience of Guardiola and Mourinho makes for an exciting competition. And you shouldn't forget Arsenal. The team is more sturdy. They've got better and more aggressive. I'm impressed with the young boy Alex Iwobi."
