Jorge Jesus: Premier League is not the best in the world Empty Jorge Jesus: Premier League is not the best in the world

Post by Gil Mon Nov 21, 2011 10:03 pm

Benfica coach Jorge Jesus has rejected the theory of the Premier League being the self-styled ''best league in the world''.

• Rooney expected to be fit

With its high excitement factor and end-to-end tactics, the competition has become a major draw worldwide. Most countries have bought TV rights, which in turn has brought in finance to help attract many of the world's best players at some stage in their careers.

However, Jesus for one is not convinced the entertainment on offer in England has outstripped the abilities on show in Spain, Germany and Italy.

''In Spain, Germany and Italy there is a big technical and tactical input in every match,'' he said. ''There are many foreign players in England, and also quite a few teams have foreign managers, so the quality has improved.

''The English league is a good league but compared with Spain, Germany and Italy it is not so good.''

Jesus does claim Benfica's opponents in the Champions League, Manchester United, are a class apart given their outstanding form in Europe over the last four years, during which time they have played in three finals.

''They are different,'' he said. ''That is the reason why they have won so much. Manchester United have different ideas and a different history. They show that on the pitch. They are much stronger technically this season.

''They keep the ball quite well and in almost every match they have 60% possession compared with the other team.''

Well if we're going by that logic then La Liga is most definitely the best league in the world, judging by the quality of the top 2 teams...

They're only two teams. The overall quality of the league as far as technique and tactics is poor IMO. Still exciting and has the best athletes though.

Champions League is a learning process but i'd say Villareal were dispatched with consumate ease in our last fixture so they're learning quickly smoking

Thats not the point BC and Zeal


he criticise PL, but then says Man utd are an exception because they have most of the ball, i.e Technical football in comparsion to the other leagues

In that case u can say the same about Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Man city.

That will mean 6 teams in the PL who are the exception to his argument

Doesn't make sense.

Fair point. City are a good side and I'd never argue against that fact. But when you played Villarreal they were at a very low point and missing a few key players.

City will be a force in Europe soon but I don't think they will be dominating anyone soon (maybe later). Regardless of that City's quality does not reflect the league's quality.

Except none of the teams you mentioned have been as consistent in Europe as United have been. That's the yard stick Jesus is using.

11 years in a row Arsenal have Reached R16 or gone Beyond against the likes of Top dogs in Europe. I would call that Consistency

Liverpool have reached 2 finals in last 7 years, compared to united's 3. I agree they arnt in the CL atm nor they were good in their last Cl campaign but they were consistent as well till 2 years ago

Chelsea went beyond R16 in their last 4 years as well

City are new ofcoarse, Tottenham are crap.

I think this is translated from Portuguese and as such, it leaves some things open to interpretation.

I would like to think, he was suggesting that other then Man Utd the English teams lack something technically and tactically compared to those in Italy, Germany and Spain.

He doesnt have to be talking about out and out quality and the best teams.
