Rio Ferdinand, a former player for Manchester United, supports Tottenham Hotspur to win the Premier League.
Rio Ferdinand, a former player for Manchester United who knows a thing or two about winning Premier League championships, seems to be sold on the Tottenham Hotspur team that Ange Postecoglou is assembling.
The Australian manager, who previously returned Celtic to the top of the SPL, now has the opportunity to create another chapter in England by ending Tottenham’s protracted title drought. Spurs are now in first place, tied with Arsenal on points, although they have a better goal differential than the Gunners.
This season, Tottenham is yet to suffer a defeat in the Premier League. This season, Postecoglou’s team has pulled off multiple comeback victories, displaying a previously uncommon winning mindset.
Some people who know better are now publicly supporting what is the beginning of a title charge, despite the fact that some people might dismiss it as a purple patch. Going all the way would put an end to Tottenham’s 62-year league title drought and elevate Postecoglou into club mythology.
In an interview with Vibe with Five on YouTube (via The Mirror), Ferdinand expressed his desire for Tottenham to win the championship and said he thought Postecoglou had changed the team’s fortunes. However, he also acknowledges that he would not want Manchester City to win four straight league championships.
“I honestly like Spurs more. I’m a huge Spurs fan, so come on, Ange. This old man has added something to that squad that hasn’t been there in a while.
Despite his best efforts, Pochettino was unable to end the trophy curse. The Argentine’s present affiliation with Chelsea leaves us with a bitter aftertaste about his history at N-17. Postecoglou’s recent emergence as our new savior may be appropriate.
Tottenham is within striking distance from Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool, so it would be ridiculous for us to get overconfident with 30 games remaining. Then again, what good is playing football if you can’t enjoy your victories? Whatever the outcome, Spurs supporters have every cause to be upbeat and rejoice.
Tottenham is confident and motivated going into the international break. Hopefully this is the start of a truly exceptional era for the club and its supporters rather than just another false dawn.
