Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga: Premier League remains the best competition

Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga admits the Premier League remains the best competition in the world.

Boga left Chelsea last year to sign permanently with the Serie A outfit. With the Blues, he also played on-loan in Spain with Granada and France with Rennes.

He told Foot Mercato, "To compare to England, it's less intense. There is a lot more stoppages of play, tactics. There is more possession while in England, it is really 'we all go forward'.

"In France, it's a bit similar, it's a technical championship where we like to play ball with a lot of good young players. In terms of intensity, England is really the best championship."

Boga added: "The assessment is rather positive. The first year, despite my injury where I missed two, three months, I came back well. This year, I'm getting stronger and stronger, especially at the statistical level. For the moment, the result is positive."
