“We would’ve been champions” – Former Manchester United coach makes title claim against Man City


Former assistant coach to Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, Ricardo Formosinho has claimed that the devils would have won the league title in 2017/18.

United finished in second place that season, 19 points adrift of City, who got a Premier League record 100 points to became ‘The Centurions’.

As reported by Record, Formosinho said: ‘We weren’t champions, but in a fight with  Man City, who did not fulfil, as proved later, FFP. We were runners-up, at a time when, having sporting truth, we would’ve been champions…’.

In February this year City were banned from the Champions League for two years following ‘serious breaches’ of FFP rules between 2012 and 2016.

However, in July City were cleared of ‘disguising equity funds as sponsorship contributions’ and their Champions League ban was lifted.

“People may ask why he’s the best. I answer that because he thinks faster and comes up with solutions faster,” Formosinho added.

“When talking about the growth of others at the tactical level, he goes far ahead strategically. He’s different for the better. I’d even say much better.”
