La Liga is Better Than Premier League

The Portuguese winger, who has already been christened ‘CR9’ by Spanish press, believes that he will now be playing in the best league…

Real Madrid megastar Cristiano Ronaldo is relishing playing in Spain’s Primera Division after six years and countless accolades in the Premier League with Manchester United.

The world’s most expensive footballer will be officially unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday evening, but before his glittering night of nights, he has joined the eternal argument of which league is currently the best.

“The Premier League is a very good competition,” he was quoted as saying on, “but I think that the Spanish league is going to have a little more quality because of the players who are arriving.

“Both leagues are going to be very good, but I think that with Florentino Perez’s signings, the Spanish league will be superior to the English.”

With Los Blancos already having Kaka and Karim Benzema in their ranks while continuing to pursue the likes of Franck Ribery, the rivalry in La Liga will be intense in the 2009-10 campaign, especially with Barcelona looking to bring in Keirrison and Javier Mascherano and Atletico Madrid pursuing Andrea Pirlo.

“It’s going to be a magnificent competition in Spain this year,” Ronaldo enthused. “All the footballers have a lot of quality and the referees protect the players more.”
