Wenger says Premier League still best in world
London, Nov 23(ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that the Premier League has a stronger lure than any other league in Europe despite the recent struggles of English teams in the Champions League.
Manchester City has not reached the last 16 and Chelsea is likely to suffer the same fate but Wenger still believes that English football is uniquely attractive.
"I'd still say England is the strongest, because in England if they want a player they get him, still. As long as that happens you will be the most powerful in Europe. Are we the best in Europe? That's another question," the Independent quoted Wenger, as saying.
"England is best, because there's something more here. It is not only linked with what you see on the pitch but how you experience football. That's what I believe deeply. And when I speak to the players they say exactly the same," he added.
Wenger said English teams have struggled recently because of improvements abroad rather than decay at home.
"Maybe we [English clubs] have less room, less margin, than we had before when it was just a question of when we would qualify," Wenger said.
"Now German football has come up, Spanish football is there every year and some French clubs have come back like Paris Saint-Germain. It looks less obvious for us," he said. (ANI)
