La Liga > Premier League or La Liga < Premier League?
The Premier League…Often regarded as the the best football division in the world, however in recent years that ‘title’ has become threatened by the rise of the La Liga. This article is going to review the merits of both leagues and help you make your mind up about which is better.
I will begin with the nature of the league’s. The Premier League is much more physical than the La Liga which is why many people have discussed whether or not the any of the teams barring Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia and Athletico Madrid would even make it into the English top division. That though can of course work both ways as the referee’s of the Spanish division might not tolerate the philosophy of the teams physical approach. I could easily see teams like Stoke City getting men sent of every match because of their approach.
It is hotly debated whether the La Liga is easier than the Premier League with Cristiano Ronaldo as a piece of proof that it is. Ronaldo’s best ever goal tally in the Premier League was 31 while his best in La Liga is 46, although this could just because he has a better team around him or he’s improved…A lot.
That brings us on to the next argument in which only the top teams are brought in to question. Which league has the higher amount of talent? The Champions League is the only competition in which the title holders in all the leagues can meet. It does seem clear that if the title holders of the Premier League (Manchester City) and the La Liga (Real Madrid) faced each other Real Madrid would be victorious, but last year Chelsea football club came 6th in the Premier League ,but won the Champions League beating Barcelona who came 2nd in the La Liga on their journey to Munich.
So far it has been a bit one sided, but have you ever wondered why the Spanish national team is packed with so much talent? One of the main reasons for this is that the La Liga clubs are so tolerant of their youth and give them great opportunities. The motto of many Premier League clubs ,especially Chelsea and Man City, is to buy young foreign talent and to forget about their youth system. Even the clubs youth team is filled with bought foreign talent, but the Spanish teams stick with the youth talent from their country.
When it comes down to which League is more entertaining there’s no question. It’s the Premier League. No other league is more open before the season starts. No other league spends so much money and definately no other league can provide an end to a season like last season.
So make your mind up. Which league is better?
