Former Nigeria captain, Austin Okocha has said the German Bundesliga is better than the English Premier league.
During an interactive session with reporters in the StarTimes, DFL Deutsche Fussball Bundesliga Legend Tour in Lagos yesterday, he said the Bundesliga is a more complete league than the Premier League.
''The Bundesliga is better than Premier League in terms of tactical approach, technical approach, discipline, stadium attendance and number of goals scored per week.
''It is more complete league and actually contributed to my rapid football career because the foundation I had there shaped me for the successes I attained in other leagues in Europe.
“I always tell people that I got to Germany as a boy but left as man. It toughened me, shaped me and turned me into the mercurial player that fans around the world adored”, said the ex Eintracht Frankfurt star.
Also additional that Bundesliga has the best youth development program in the world, citing success stories of German football in recent years to its strong and vibrant youth development initiative.
I believe everyone has rights to his or her opinion. But, I totally disagree with Okocha
