Dimitar Berbatov backs Jose Mourinho to land Premier League title

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov backs Jose Mourinho to deliver the Premier League title to Old Trafford this season.

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has tipped Jose Mourinho to deliver the Premier League title to Old Trafford this season.

United have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013, but the Red Devils were Manchester City's closest challengers last term.

Berbatov landed two Premier League crowns during his time with the English giants, and the 37-year-old has backed Mourinho to secure the trophy in the coming season.

"Manchester United need to get back to being champions again, to do this you need to do one thing, and one thing only, you need to win. It doesn't matter how many goals you score; one goal is enough if you don't let one in your net," Berbatov told betfair.

"It's getting more difficult as in the league, teams are getting stronger. Everybody wants to be the team that people say, 'they play great football', but at my time at the club and how we used to do things, there aren't that many changes.

"You still pass the ball and you move, it's not difficult, and now United have talented players in the team and can improve on being runners up.

"Mourinho is the best at this, you cannot question his ability with the silverware he's won. When I go back to the training ground, players tell me how the team is well built and I can't wait to see them as champions."

United will open their 2018-19 Premier League campaign at home to Leicester City on August 10.
