Wenger: EPL still the best

WENGER-BAYERNLONDON, England, February 28- Arsene Wenger believes the Premier League is still the toughest league in the world, despite English teams producing such abject performances in Europe this season.

England’s top-flight sides have, over the past decade, dominated the latter stages of the Champions League, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea all lifting the title during that period, while Arsenal came close after making the final in 2006.

However, the Gunners, United and new superpower Manchester City all suffered 2-0 defeats in their respective last-16 ties over the past two weeks, while the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Galatasaray.

Despite all four sides now on the verge of dropping out of Europe’s premier club cup competition before the quarter-final stage, Arsenal boss Wenger is convinced that some of the game’s best talent can be found in the English game.

“I maintain it is the best, despite the results,” said the Frenchman.

“It is the most leveled league. There is not the difference if you take the difference of quality, for example, between Bayern Munich and the rest of the German league. You have Bayern, Dortmund, then there is a big gap.

“In the Premier League you can go to Cardiff, anybody, and lose. Spain was a good league as well.

“But this season the English league is the most difficult. Maybe as well we pay a little bit the price for that.

“Of course, when we play against Bayern you cannot say it is a comparison of the two leagues – it is a comparison of the teams, and they are one of the top ones in Europe.”
