SINGAPORE, July 27 — Spain’s La Liga is the best league in the world, according to former Valencia midfielder Gaizka Mendieta.

The Spanish midfielder, who amassed a 15-year career across the English Premier League (EPL), Serie A and La Liga, said Italy and England’s top division are not far behind, but both lack the quality and technicality of La Liga.


“The best league is La Liga without a doubt. Italy was too physical for me and involved a lot of defending, while England is more attacking but lacks the technical aspects of La Liga.

“Over in Spain, the league brings a good balance between the two — lots of goals and attractive football,” the 44-year-old told Malay Mail earlier today.
