However, Sir Alex shocked everyone with a shocking prediction about Premier League title-chasers Tottenham Hotspur. He also made a bold prediction that his beloved Manchester United will finish ahead of the North London side in the PL 23/24 season.

Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t think Spurs can win the league in the 23/24 season

A Sky Sports reporter approached the former ‘Red Devil’ about whether Spurs will ever win the Premier League. Sir Alex Ferguson laughed at the question and nervously answered the question with a ‘no’. He also believed that the competitive nature of the Premier League and the arrival of elite teams such as Liverpool and Manchester City would greatly reduce Spurs’ title chances.

he said, “The proposition today with Man City and Liverpool, they are so powerful in the Premier League.” Sir Alex Ferguson’s comments have delighted Arsenal fans, who consider Tottenham their bitter rivals. At the end of matchday 24, Arsenal are one place ahead of fourth-placed Spurs, while Liverpool lead the pack with 54 points.

Sir Alex Ferguson also agreed that Manchester United would also struggle to win the league in the 23/24 season. However, he disagreed with the journalist’s view that Spurs have a better chance of winning the PL than ‘The Red Devils’.

Tottenham Hotspur have not won the PL since 1961

One of the main reasons behind Sir Alex’s surprising comments is the fact that Spurs have not won the league for so long. The north London side last won the league in the 1960/61 season. Many teams currently participating in the EFL Championship like Leeds United, Leicester City, etc. have won the league more recently than Spurs. This has rewarded the north London side with its false reputation as a trophyless club.

Part of Tottenham’s failure to win the league lies in their tight budget. For a long time, Tottenham Hotspur was not able to go toe-to-toe with the big English clubs. While their rivals were winning trophy after trophy, Spurs had to settle for mid-table mediocrity. Tottenham Hotspur also have a habit of collapsing in moments of pressure and that has not helped their title ambitions.

However, in the 21st century, Spurs have turned the tide in his favour. The club has become one Most profitable organizations in the soccer world and has built an ultra-modern stadium. The team is also playing some exciting soccer under Aussie manager Ange Postecoglou. If Tottenham Hotspur can maintain their tempo, the trophy will not be too far for them.
