Roy Keane names the team who have ‘no chance’ of winning the title

Roy Keane is both hilarious and terrifying as a pundit in equal measure.

The former Manchester United captain doesn’t have a filter. He says what he sees and everything he sees is either black or white.

Keane isn’t afraid to offend or upset anybody - and this makes him one of the most watchable and entertaining pundits in the business.

The 45-year-old, who currently works as the assistant manager for the Republic of Ireland national team, was at his ruthless best after Wednesday’s Champions League fixtures.

He called Pep Guardiola’s tactics against Barcelona “stupid”, he had a right old go at Leicester City for only turning it on in Europe this season, while he also ruled out one top club from winning the Premier League title.

Keane: Tottenham have no chance

Tottenham are the only unbeaten side in England’s top flight after eight matches played - five wins and three draws - and currently sit third in the table, one point behind Manchester City and Arsenal.

Yet Keane, in typically blunt fashion, told Spurs fans they can forget about finishing top of the league next May.

“This idea that they can win the Premiership, no chance,” the retired midfielder said of Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“No chance?” Mark Pougatch, the presenter, replied. “They’re the only unbeaten team at the moment.”

Keane then added: “I don’t care - no. I can’t see them winning the Premiership, no.

“But they’re progressing really well as a football club, it’s now about getting their hands on a trophy, FA Cup or a League Cup.”

Pochettino has made Spurs much stronger

Sure, Tottenham used to be flakey, but they’ve become a force to be reckoned with under Pochettino - as their impressive 2-0 victory over Manchester City earlier this month demonstrated.

But this should provide Spurs with a little more motivation - not that it was needed - to end their long wait for a league title this season.

Is Roy Keane right? Do Tottenham not have a hope of winning the title? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
