CONGRATULATIONS to Sir Alex Ferguson, Robin van Persie, Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, little Tom Cleverley and all the rest of the gang – turns out, with 12 games still to play, you’ve only gone and won the Premier League.
Well, bookmakers Paddy Power seem to think so – as they’ve now started paying out on Manchester United’s 20th league title.
The bookies were so confident of it they started doing so before the match against Everton – which they duly won 2-0.
A Paddy Power spokesperson said: “The fat lady might not be singing yet but she’s definitely getting warmed up.
“We can’t see United letting their lead slip and, with Real Madrid to come midweek, we thought we’d take some of the pressure off Fergie and give punters an early payday.”
