Legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Tottenham will never win the Premier League.
Ange Postecoglou has received much praise for the work that he has done since being appointed as Tottenham manager.
Tottenham, who were top of the table in October, are currently in fourth place and Ferguson feels that they will never win the title.
The last time that Tottenham won the league was in the 1960-61 campaign, when when Bill Nicholson was in charge.
Ferguson won the league a remarkable 13 times as United manager before retiring in 2013.
Asked by Sky Sports Racing’s Matt Chapman whether Tottenham will ever win the Premier League, Ferguson responded by saying: ‘No’ before laughing.
Ferguson continued: ‘1961 was the last time they won it. That’s a long time. The proposition today with Liverpool and Man City being so powerful in the Premier League.’
The 82-year-old was being interviewed at Newbury racecourse, where his horse Protektorat came third in the Betfair Denman Chase.
When it was suggested by Chapman that Tottenham are more likely to win the league than United, Ferguson said: ‘No chance’.
Ferguson once famously said: ‘Lads, it’s Tottenham’ as his team talk when facing the north London club at home.
Tottenham beat Brighton 2-1 at home on Saturday, with Brennan Johnson scoring a late equaliser.
