Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller is one of the true gems of football and an absolute legend for both club and country alike.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Müller was quizzed about his interest in the Premier League and the German’s response did not disappoint.

“I am a fan of the intensity in the Premier League because there are more big teams … I don’t know if quality of the clubs or the teams are really better. Because normally when we play against English teams, we have good experience! I do not feel that teams of the Premier League are super, super strong. But, of course, the competition is great. There are prestigious games each week,” said Müller.

While Müller did not deny the depth and power that resides in England, he also noted that the top-end teams in the Bundesliga can match up well with those in the Premier League.

“I think it’s the biggest league in the world, for sure. But that doesn’t mean that the top five of the Premier League are winning everything in their international competitions. When you compare the fourth of the Premier League and the fourth of the German league, when they play a knock-out game against each other, any team can win,” Müller said.
