Responding to quotes from ex-boss Jose Mourinho via journalist Richard Jolly, many Manchester United fans have swooned over his joke enquiry surrounding the club potentially being awarded the 2017/2018 Premier League title for finishing second as a result of Man City’s financial fair play saga.
Mourinho, who guided Spurs to a dramatic 3-2 victory away at Aston Villa on Saturday, spoke after the match regarding City’s two-year Champions League ban – asking if United could potentially be awarded the 2017/2018 title for finishing second if the Sky Blues got a points deduction. Many reports have surrounded UEFA’s FFP punishment, with one of them from the Daily Mail indicating that they could get points deducted from previous title-winning seasons – leading to the Portuguese gaffer’s enquiry over the 2017/2018 title switch to Old Trafford.
Of course, even though this is very unlikely to happen, many Red Devils supporters have applauded the lighthearted wish regardless – taking to Twitter and voicing their love for the former United manager.
