Sporting Kansas City midfielder Oriol Rosell insists they could compete in the Premier League.

The former Barcelona junior was asked about the prospect by Sport.

"We're at the level, we have good players," Rosell said. "For example, two are in the US national team that will play in the World Cup. We are a tough team. Two years ago Kansas beat Manchester United in a friendly and this year we will play [Manchester] City. In the CONCACAF Champions League, we won the group and got to the next round with terrible trips to Nicaragua and Honduras."
