West Ham United's former assistant manager Zeljko Petrovic has hit out at the standard of the Premier League after being shown the door by the Hammers.
The 45-year-old Montenegrin only headed to Upton Park in the summer, but has paid the price for being unable to help manager Avram Grant move their team away from the foot of the table.
That has left a bitter taste in Petrovic's mouth and he hit out by saying: "Everybody has great words for the Premier League but it is a myth. The Premier League is a crap league, it is nothing.
"In truth the level is shocking. Every team has just three good players.
"If you take those players out of the teams, then there are only players left who would not be playing in the bottom team in Holland.
"The Bundesliga is far better."
