Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo rates the Premier League ahead of the Spanish Liga.

Negredo claims that the England's top flight is now superior to Spain.

"At this point in time the Premier is stronger than La Liga," he told the Manchester Evening News. "The football here is much better organised, and the finances much sounder.

"It is harder to beat West Brom or Sunderland than a Spanish side from mid table. The gap between Barcelona, Real, Atletico and the others has become too big."
