Alex Ferguson praying for Man City slip-up

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson is hoping rivals’ Manchester City do something “stupid” and gift the title to United.

City is only a win away from lifting the Premier League title for the first time since 1968. They drew level on points on top of the table after City’s win in the Manchester derby few days ago. Their superior goal difference will take them home should they win their remaining league match against QPR at home on Sunday.

"Of course, the odds are stacked against them. City are in good form and at home. It will not be easy for them because the pressure on them will be enormous, the fans will be putting the referee under tremendous pressure.”

"It`s not going to be easy because on the face of it you expect City to win. And so do I. But as long as human beings are human beings, you never know. You just hope something stupid happens, " he was quoted as saying by BBC.
