Eric Cantona has dismissed Manchester City’s Premier League title bid, despite their colossal spending spree this summer.
Cantona had a good spell playing against the Blues during his playing days for United but their new found financial might could mean they would be ready to mount a challenge for the Premier League title. While Sir Alex Ferguson has so far only bought youngsters Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling, Roberto Mancini has already signed David Silva, Yaya Toure and Jerome Boateng & Kolarov — with more signings expected.
Cantona insisted that Manchester City remained off the pace – referring to Michael Owen and Paul Scholes’ last minute winners in meetings between the two sides last season.
“If they (City) play a game against United for 89 minutes, maybe they’ll have a chance!” Cantona joked.”
“But I think United have a team that is experienced and they have young players also – they still work on young players.”
“Chelsea don’t look so good, Liverpool seem to have problems. Arsenal? Maybe.”
