Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that the Premier League is the hardest league to win and it has become even more harder, given the financial strength of the teams.
The Portuguese manager, who has won three Premier League titles with Chelsea, is now looking to win the title with the Red Devils after leading them to a superb start to the season.
According to FourFourTwo, Mourinho said,
There's 3 teams this season fighting for title, United, city and Chelsea, Mourinho and the boys better get it right— fifa 2k17 (@alexandriaafif) September 17, 2017
"When you speak about economic power, it is not just to buy but to keep players and say, 'No, we don't sell'. That power belongs to every club in the Premier League, so the teams are potentially strong."
Mourinho has won league titles in Spain, Italy and Portugal but claims England's top flight is the toughest to win.
"But it was always difficult for different reasons. It is difficult because this is the country with more teams that fight for the title."
"And with more teams outside that group of six or seven who have conditions to give you hard matches and to take points off you.
