Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says he is “not interested” in who wins the Premier League title this season as two of the Red Devils’ biggest rivals battle it out.
Arsenal are five points clear of reigning champions Man City with just 11 games remaining of the league campaign. The two sides still have to play each other when they do battle in Manchester at the end of April.
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since 2004 while City have claimed four of the last five domestic crowns. Man United are approaching 10 years since they last lifted the Premier League trophy.
“I’m not interested,” Ferguson told ITV Racing at the Cheltenham Festival when asked about his preference for the Premier League title.
United had briefly threatened to come up the rails in the race for the title but any realistic hopes of Erik ten Hag winning the league in his first season were all-but quashed by a 7-0 defeat at Anfield earlier this month.
Ferguson is the most successful manager in British football history, winning 13 Premier League titles with Manchester United between 1986 and 2013.
He was in charge at Old Trafford during one of the fiercest eras of the rivalry between Arsenal and United in the early 2000s and beat Man City to the title in his final season in management in 2013.
Since his retirement, the club have won just four trophies after picking up the FA Cup in 2016 a Europa League and League Cup double in 2017 while ending a five-year trophy drought with last month’s League Cup victory over Newcastle United at Wembley.
