Gary Neville has heaped praise on Tottenham following the 4-1 win over Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday.
The former Manchester United defender was speaking to Sky Sports during the post-match analysis when he revealed he hopes Spurs can win the title, although he doesn’t think they will.
“The job that Pochettino is doing here and the team that he has is brilliant,” said Neville. (Quotes via Squawka.)
“It’s everything Tottenham were not during my football career – resilient, good to watch, robust defensively and with young players – English players too, which is always a bonus. Harry Winks was fantastic today and in The Bernabeu.
“Everything is right – it is a brilliant team, a brilliant coach, going into a new stadium and looking like they love playing with each other and with a connection to the fans.
“We have been quick over the years to criticise Daniel Levy and don’t offer praise when things are going right but he’s got a fantastic manager, a great youth set-up and now the youth players are being given a chance.
“People might say they don’t pay as well as other sides but maybe he’s running his club in a sustainable way and that’s an achievement.
“I hope they can win the league because they play well enough to win the league but I think in the end it will be too much for them and that’s my honest opinion.”
The trip to Manchester United next weekend will be the biggest indication yet as to whether Spurs can challenge for the title this season.
