Man U were gifted title last season: Redknapp
London: Ahead of the Tottenham Hotspur-Manchester United Premier League clash, Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has said that Manchester United were lucky to win the title last season.
Redknapp claimed that the trophy ended up at Old Trafford because United’s main rivals threw it away.
“Last year I think United got away with it when they won the title. Other teams threw it away,” a daily quoted Redknapp, as saying.
“Arsenal had a great chance to win it with nine games to go, but they blew it. Manchester United won it without being at their best,” he added.
Redknapp further insisted that Manchester City would probably be just as good as United this season.
“They are strong, no question about that. But I wouldn’t say they are stronger than Manchester City,” he said.
“City have Aguero, Tevez and now possibly Nasri. They are going to be right up there. Their squad is unbelievable,” he added.
