  • Why premier league should not be considered the best in the world

    Premier league is by far the most followed league in the world , Revenues and broadcasting right and sponsorship deals also make  the league the richest, they spend huge amount of money bringing in top player but that doesn't mean its the best league in the world , they still struggle when it come to European game especially against Spanish opposition  who have won 7 champions league title in the past 10 years.

    Here are some of the reasons they shouldn't  be considered the best in the world 

    1. Failure to dominate Europe
    Uefa champions league is where every top club in Europe have the opportunity to face each other,in the past 10 years, Spanish league team have been able to win it on 7 occasion, while English Premier league,Italian Serie A and German Bundesliga teams shared the remaining three, and the last time an English league team won the competition was against Bayern Munich in 2011-2012 season.

    The European second tier competition (Europa league) have been dominated also by Spanish league teams in the past 10 years,  La Liga teams has won it on 6 occasions while premier league teams has manage to win it twice.

    2. Failure to produce Balon d'or winner

    Premier league have fail to produce the world best player since Ronaldo won it while on the book of Manchester United in 2008,   Lionel Messi ,Cristiano Ronaldo  who dominated the past ten years and this year winner Luka Modric all ply their trade in La Liga while winning the award which shows Premier league is no where near the standard of Spanish football.
    3. Head to head
    Premier league teams have fail to beat it Spanish opposition  in the knockout stage for many years now , the last time was in 2011-2012 season when Chelsea beat Barcelona on their way to lifting the trophy, Barcelona have successfully knocked out Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea all with wide margin while Athletico Madrid knocked out Chelsea on two occasions, to sum up the tally , La Liga teams have won 20 times out of 24 meetings against English premier league side in the past 10 years.

    In the Second tier competition, Spanish league teams have the better head to head record against English Premier league team, La liga teams have won on 6 occasion while Premier league teams manage only 2 titles in the past 10 years.


    To be considered the best league in the world, premier league should step up their game when it comes to playing in the champions league and Europa league.
