Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo: Why LaLiga better than Premier League

Real Valladolid owner Ronaldo Nazario is adamant the LaLiga is the best competition in the world.

Despite the Premier League having four teams in the finals of the Europa League and Champions League, Ronaldo insists Spain boasts the superior product.

He told AS: "It is not clear that the Premier is better than our League, perhaps in television revenues the clubs receive more, but the best players are in Spain, or at least most of them."

Asked about his favourite players, the Real Madrid icon also said: "(Lionel) Messi, of course, he is number one, it is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar.

"I also like (Mohamed) Salah, (Eden) Hazard, Neymar - and I love watching him play, of course (Kylian) Mbappé."
