Yaya Toure has warned Manchester City that next season Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will be “very angry” for the Premier League title.
The Citizens finished 19 points clear of second-placed United as they romped to a record-breaking title triumph in 2017-18. Guardiola’s men set new Premier League record by becoming the first club to claim 100 points in the top flight, registering 32 wins, netting most goals (106) and creating the biggest goal difference(79) in a remarkable season.
With United having been left in their neighbours’ wake, Toure, who left the club at the end of the season, expects a backlash from Mourinho in 2018-19.
The Ivorian also fears the potency of Tottenham, describing Mauricio Pochettino’s side as “fantastic” following their third-place finish.
Speaking to MEN Sport, Toure said, “Mourinho is going to be very angry. Tottenham is a good side. Fantastic. Man City can win again but it depends. The World Cup is on, the players don’t have enough rest and have to come back and play again. If they don’t have injuries they can make it but it’s going to be difficult because next year is going to be a different situation.”
He has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Everton and West Ham United.
