Spanish players to flood the Premier League soon
Swansea forward Michu claims more Spanish players will play in the Premier League in the near future. The Spaniard claims there will be a massive increase in the amount of Spanish players in England since the Premier League is believed to be more competitive than La Liga.
The 27-year-old forward moved from Rayo Vallecano to Swansea last summer. Since his arrival in the Premier League, Michu has done well by scoring 22 goals in 43 games. Other prominent Spanish players in the Premier League are Santi Cazorla, David Silva, Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Pepe Reina. Manchester City’s latest signing Jesus Navas is now also on the list.
Football analyst have blamed the two-horse race between Real Madrid and Barcelona and high taxes the reasons to Spanish players wanting to join the Premier League.
“The Premier League is superior in all aspects,” Michu said. “The structure, the fans, the competitiveness and, most of all, the economic power. Any English club can now buy a Spanish player of any team except Madrid or Barca.
“The Spanish market is very good value for money. And the success of the talented little players like Juan Mata, David Silva and Santi Cazorla has proved a phenomenon in England.”
The competition in the Premier League continues to rise each season. Last season, there were seven teams competing for a Champions League berth in the Premier League. Moreover, underdogs such as Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur game a difficult time to Premier League giants such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
This clearly shows that level of competition in the Premier League is far more intense than in Spain, where Real Madrid and Barcelona have been the only dominant teams for decades.
“The English league is much more competitive than it is in Spain. Here you can win at any ground. In Spain it is impossible to go to the Nou Camp or the Bernabeu and expect to succeed,” Michu said.
“The passion of fans in England is fantastic. Your supporters follow you to all your away games. And because of the way it is organized, they can also plan their trips for the whole season.”
