Jose Mourinho names 'Man City B team' as one of four teams that can win Premier League


Jose Mourinho was in the Sky Sports studio as a pundit for the first time on Sunday.

The Portuguese coach, who is still out of work after being sacked by Manchester United last December, has agreed to join the broadcaster until he finds a new job.

Securing the services of Mourinho is a huge coup for Sky Sports and no doubt it helped attract a few new subscribers for the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

Mourinho was at Old Trafford ahead of the clash between two of his former clubs, United and Chelsea.

He was also in the studio, alongside Graeme Sourness and Gary Neville, to provide analysis for Newcastle United’s opener against Arsenal.

At the top of the programme, Mourinho was asked which teams he thinks can win the title - and his answer raised plenty of eyebrows on social media.

“Who can win the title? Four,” he replied. “Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City B team.”

He added: “When I looked at the bench yesterday, the players not involved I think even the B team could fight for the title.”

City currently sit top of the Premier League table after thrashing West Ham 5-0 away from home.

On the bench were Sergio Aguero, Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, Claudio Bravo, Nicolas Otamendi, Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo.

Benches don’t get much stronger than that.

On Chelsea and United’s chances of competing with City, Liverpool and Spurs, Mourinho said: “I don’t believe they’re going to resist in the title race.”


He also added: “I want to say that the obvious thing, we would love United and Chelsea at that level. In football, sometimes unpredictable things can happen, but I think we all agree, a team last season that won everything in England last season and the European champions.”
