Ernie Merrick believes A-League teams are bridging the gap on clubs in Asian leagues.
‚ÄúThere is not much between the Australian, South Korean and Chinese teams,‚ÄĚ he said.
‚ÄúNo doubt the stronger league is in Japan where the technical skills and speed is of a higher quality but I think we are rapidly closing the gap.
‚ÄúWhen you consider their big budgets, they are not restricted by salary caps and have bigger squads, the Australian clubs have done well.
‚ÄúOur clubs have certainly made progress.‚ÄĚ
