Metro have stunned our regulars here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that Tottenham Hotspur can win the Premier League – well according to Spurs star Benjamin Stambouli at least!
The 25-year-old Frenchman was asked about his team’s chances this season and was slightly more enthusiastic than anyone could have imagined.
The former Montpellier man declared that his side could actually catch league leaders Chelsea who are a massive 15 points ahead of them already and we have not even reached Christmas yet.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, he claimed: “We can do it,
“Tottenham are maybe not Manchester City or Chelsea if you see the money, but Montpellier were very small.
“We have talent in the squad. We have some players who have all the mental and technical qualities but now we have to think what we really want.”
Now the majority of our punters seem to think that the Lilywhites have a chance of making the top four this season if they get their act together but when it comes to the title, they have as much chance as Roberto Soldado has of being awarded the Ballon d’Or!
