Not so long ago the Spanish league was the best in the world in this sport. Real Madrid and Barcelona they were the two most powerful clubs on the planet. They were led by Messi and Christian, and they had squires of the stature of Neymar, Luis Suarez, Iniesta or Xavi on the one hand and Bale, Benzema, Sergio Ramos or Modric for another.
They took between them 5 Champions in a row, from 2014 to 2018 without failure. To this must be added the Atletico Madrid of Simeone or the Seville of the three consecutive Europa League. But little by little, the ‘handsome boys’ of football they were abandoning our competition and began to look more to another: the Premier League.
The might of English clubs gradually consolidated, but reached its zenith in 2019. That season the 4 European finalists were from the Premier: Tottenham and Liverpool they played the final of the Champions (0-2) and Chelsea and Arsenal that of the Europa League (4-1). none of them won the domestic title, which went to him City of Guardiola. Let’s not forget United.
A domain he only avoided the Villareal that was repeated last year. Again there was an English Champions final, between Chelsea and City (1-0) while Emery’s they deprived the red devils of the title on penalties (1-1 and 11-10). The European Super Cup it was taken by the whole of London. More dominance.
But there are things that go beyond results. That justify them, basically. The origin of everything is in the television rights, very high for all the Premier teams. That spreads to the arrival of great coaches. They are currently in the Premier Guardiola, Klopp, Nuno or Tuchel, although until now we also added to Ancelotti, Mourinho or Pochettino.
Another is the signings. This summer, Lukaku has gone to Chelsea for 115 million euros, Grealish has changed the Villa for the City by 117 and Cristiano has returned to Manchester United. The ‘middle class’ of the Premier is one more argument to finish this whole article. The Leeds of Bielsa, the Wolverhamtpon, the Aston Villa, … a lot of name out there.
After all this explanatory statement, does anyone still have doubts that the Premier is the best league in the world?
