BBC pundit jokes he doesn’t want Leicester to win league title

Jermaine Jenas

Former Nottingham Forest midfielder Jermaine Jenas jokes that he does not want Leicester City to win the Premier League title this season.

Former Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas said on The Monday Night Club on BBC Radio 5 live Sport on Monday evening (February 29) that he does not want Leicester City to win the Premier League title this season.

“I don’t want them (Leicester) to win it,” joked Jenas. “Simple. Simple answer. I don't. Spurs have never won the Premier League, and I used to play for Spurs. I used to play for Forest.”

Given that Jenas played for Tottenham, it is understandable why he would not want Leicester to clinch the league title this campaign.

Moreover, the former England international midfielder is from Nottingham and started his professional club football career at Forest.

However, there is a good chance that the Foxes will become the champions of England this season.

Despite their failure to win against West Bromwich Albion at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening, the Foxes remain in a strong position in the table.

It will not be easy for Leicester to win the league title this season, especially as they do not have the experience of being in such a situation.

However, the Foxes’ consistency and manager Claudio Ranieri’s insistence on playing down his side’s chances could be important for them in the final weeks of the season.

Leicester will return to action on Saturday evening when they take on Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.
