– Despite the great bids last summer, of Chelsea, Tottenham retained Luka Modric. This was an indication of how ambitious and how serious they think. It paid them, because they had a great season so far – said Ferguson, whose team will play on Sunday exactly against Tottenham Spurs in the 27th derby Premiership round.
– Until three weeks ago Tottenham played the best football in the Premiership – added Sir Alex.
Away defeat at Manchester City 3-2 and Arsenal 5-2, Tottenham is likely drop out of the race for the title, because they lags behind the leading City 10 points, and Manchester United for eight.
