London, Dec. 22 (ANI): The Premier League is the second best, and Spain's La Liga is the strongest on the planet, claimed World Player of The Year 2009 Lionel Messi.
Barcelona's Messi, 22, insisted: "The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka at Real make the Spanish league stronger than the English. Players want to come to Spain."
But he admitted: "We have to recognise it is the English clubs who have reached the latter stages of the Champions League recently." (ANI)
