Premier League superior to La Liga, says Michu

The 27-year-old, who joined Swansea for £2 million from Rayo Vallecano last July in one of the deals of last season, claims Spanish players offer excellent value for money

The story is too old to be commented.

i agree!

La liga has only 2 teams who will likely win the la liga, (you know who they are)

Atl Madrid are creeping up but they've got a while til they can really compete for the title.

Whereas the PL has 3 or 4 teams who could win the title, United,City,Chelsea heck maybe even Arsenal!

The PL has been better than LaLiga for quite a long time now. Who, from other continents, support any team from LaLiga other than Real and Barca?

Angerfist1263d ago

Thats obvious, La Liga has only 2 Times who can win the Championship, as Premier League has 3 with Chelsea, ManC and ManU, Arsenal and Tottenham as RunnerUps. This is just a League Comparison, in international Competition Spain is superior.

Coming from a guy who scored more goals in less games in the EPL than La Liga. Premier League... Easy League!

Give the Spanish teams the money of the EPL teams and then we can talk.

Before Chelsea and City got the money, United won every year but 4.

People talk about competition!

United have won 13/21 EPL seasons.
Barca have only won 10/21 seasons since EPL formation.

The only team in a European League with better championships to seasons ratio is Porto, 15/21!

Premier League... Easy League!

when you say give them the same money what do u mean cos i remember madrid paying 80million for cr7 so its not like their teams are broke..

FlunkinMonkey1263d ago

So very true.. what a pile of s***, grow up fanboy

@Anderson8, selective reading it seems! Expected from a United fan!

If 80% of La Liga teams just had Swansea money they'd be better off, never mind something like Spurs or Arsenal money.

Premier League buying more Spanish players, guess the league needs quality, can't produce any!

@Monkey

Michu;
Rayo Vallecano 2011/12 - 37 games, 15 goals.
Swansea City 2012/13 - 35 games, 18 goals.

Deal with the facts! ;)

"Give the Spanish teams the money of the EPL teams and then we can talk."

Isn't that the whole problem with La Liga? that Barca/Real take all of the TV revenue for themselves and don't share it?

Man UTD may still dominate but they do it without keeping the rest of the teams down and you don't expect them to win 5-0 every week.
