Benfica coach Jorge Jesus has rubbished the standard of the Premier League. Jesus says English football is strictly fourth division as he prepares to face Champions League opponents Manchester United.

"In Spain, Germany and Italy there is a big technical and tactical input in every match," said Jesus.

"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."
