Gary Neville says Jose Mourinho winning the Premier League title with Tottenham would be an “outstanding story” and would send shockwaves of “alarm” through the fanbases of their closest rivals.
After an ugly win over West Brom, Spurs are one point off the top of the league heading into the international break with a game in hand, leading many to speculate as to whether Mourinho could win his fourth Premier League title.
And while Neville still doesn’t believe Tottenham can go all the way, he admits it would be “one of the great stories”.
“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,” he 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.”
