Everything seems perfect in Premier League

La Liga teams dominating Europe
Dominating the European tournaments was famous for Spanish clubs. Frenkie De Jong said that the current decade was the absolute best of La Liga Teams. Barcelona could win two Champions League, and Real Madrid could win four champions league, and Atletico Madrid played two finals.

Premier League teams on top of the European football
De Jong said that everything changed in the last few years. Dutch midfielder believes that Premier League teams are more powerful now. Intensity became an important factor for winning the international trophies; that’s why Premier League clubs became better in Europe.
