Ron: Spanish league the best

06 Jul 2009 - 09:23:36

Cristiano Ronaldo believes La Liga has now emerged as the best league in the world following his record transfer to Real Madrid.

The £80million Portugal winger has swapped Manchester United and the Premier League for the Bernabeu this summer and firmly believes that the Spanish top-flight is emerging as the world's pre-eminent competition.

Referring to Mardrid's capture of himself from England and Brazil star Kaka from Italy, he said: "The Premier League is a very good competition, but I think that the Spanish league is going to have a little more quality because of the players that are arriving.

"Both leagues are going to be very good, but I think that with (president) Florentino Perez's signings the Spanish league is superior to the English.

"It's going to be a magnificent competition in Spain this year. All the players have a lot of quality and the referees protect the players more."

Ronaldo will be officially unveiled as a Madrid player in front of an expected 80,000 full house at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday evening.
