Premier League winner explains why he is backing Leicester for the title

Quinton Fortune has commented on the Premier League title race.

Former Premier League winner Quinton Fortune says he is rooting for Leicester City over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal to win the title this season due to their team spirit, the video by ePlayer shows.

Fortune won the league title in 2003 with Manchester United, yet his former team are surprisingly way off the target this season alongside the fellow usual names of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

It has allowed both Tottenham and Arsenal to take advantage, yet the North London clubs have been upstaged by a Leicester City side who now hold a seven-point gap over second place with five games remaining.

Commenting on their success, Fortune says the Foxes have shown how you do not need to spend a lot of money to create a winning side and how team spirit and organisation can take you far.

“I never saw Leicester being in that position. I’m glad because it shows you don’t need a lot of money to create a winning team,” the former United midfielder explained, shown by ePlayer.

“What Leicester have shown is great team spirit, a well organised team, working and playing for each other and they’ve got two good players upfront. I think the group there is unbelievable so I’m rooting for them to win the league and hopefully they can do that.”

Leicester have back-to-back home games against West Ham United and Swansea City coming up, and if results go their way they could land the title before they then travel to Old Trafford to face United.

Most neutrals are rooting for Claudio Ranieri’s men such is the surprise of their campaign, and right now they must be considered heavy favourites with only a handful of league matches remaining.
