Roy Keane has stated that according to him, Tottenham Hotspur have no chance of winning the Premier League this season.
Tottenham currently lie 3rd in the Premier League table – just 1 point behind Manchester City and Arsenal, who occupy the 1st and 2nd spot respectively.
However, having won 5 games and drawn 3, Spurs are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League so far. They are also the only team to have beaten Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who were unstoppable until they met Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
But despite their unbeaten record and top level performances, Spurs apparently haven’t managed to impress former Manchester United midfielder, and current football pundit, Roy Keane.
Keane enjoyed a lot of success against Tottenham back in his playing days, as Sir Alex’s teams almost always seemed to beat the North London club. And it is evident from the Irishman’s latest comments that his perception of Spurs hasn’t changed one bit.
When asked if Spurs have a squad good enough to win the Premier League as well as progress far in the Champions League this season, Keane replied:
“Yeah, they have a much stronger squad, but they are missing a few important players, but that’s a challenge for any group of players – to cope with it. But this idea that they can win the Premiership, I think, no chance.”
“No chance?” interrupted the host of the show. “They are the only unbeaten team at the moment!”
Keano’s reply: “I don’t care. No, I can’t seem them winning the Premiership, no.”
