Tottenham can win title - Ferguson
- From the section Football
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Tottenham Hotspur can win this season's Premier League title but refuses to accept that Chelsea and Arsenal are out of contention.
Ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Blackburn Rovers - on the occasion of his 70th birthday - Ferguson speaks of the "shock" at how his opposite number, Steve Kean, has been treated, describing his fellow Glaswegian as "dignified".
The 12-time Premier League winner also confirms that defender Chris Smalling is suffering only from tonsillitis and that Dimitar Bebatov will be offered a one-year contract extension in March.
