Mourinho Takes The Mickey?
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho thinks Manchester City is capable of winning this seasons Premier League title. Is he taking the Mickey?
I along with tens of thousands of City fans would love us to win the 2009/10 trophy but come on, lets be serious. Even the most die-hard fan must be mad if he thinks we can mount a serious challenge, well not for a couple of seasons anyway.
It takes time to build a team ethos - it takes time to build team spirit, it simply takes time.
Motor-mouth Mourinho has this to say...
'Adebayor up front with Carlos Tevez - unbelievable! And they have Roque Santa Cruz and Robinho too. What a strike force! That's it, City are champions for sure.'
'It's not buying the title. You buy the players you think can do the job but you still need to prove you are the best - the best coach, the best team and that's tough and no amount of money can buy that.'
Buy the title? Oh yes, I seem to remember now when Kenny Dalglish teamed up with Blackburn Rovers, and with Sutton and Shearer won the league at the first time of asking.
To knock Arsenal out of the top 4 will do this season. As for 2010/11, well who knows but i'll say this. I'll be more than happy to eat humble pie should Hughes and Co do the incredible.
