​Ex-Spurs striker Janssen: Liga MX better than Eredivisie

Former Tottenham Hotspur attacker Vincent Janssen has praised Liga MX.

Janssen has been with Monterrey CF since leaving Spurs in July 2019.

He won the 2019 Apertura in his first season with the club, and he believes the league is more competitive than the Dutch Eredivisie.

"The Mexican league is very good and the standard is high," Janssen told VTBL. "It is better than the Eredivisie. That's my opinion.

"Here there are a lot of international players that come from this part of the world and there are two that come from Europe, of which I am one.

"It is a completely different way of playing football and it certainly isn't bad in terms of quality.

"If you look at our team, you'll see national team players from Mexico, Colombia and Argentina."
