Pep Guardiola: Premier League harder to win than Bundesliga and LaLiga

Manchester City were presented with the Premier League trophy after Sunday's 0-0 draw with Huddersfield at Etihad Stadium and Pep Guardiola says he believes that it's more difficult to win the title in England than in Spain or Germany. The Spaniard has won the title in LaLiga with Barcelona and also the Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich. He joined Manchester City in 2016 and was unable to win the league title during his first season. "Here, it is more difficult," said Guardiola. "In England, it's special because it's so tough."

Pep Guardiola said that there are "huge contenders" for the Premier League title and the chase for the top spot is also made difficult by the overall quality of the teams in the league. Guardiola has won LaLiga six times as a player with Barcelona and then won three league titles with them as a manager before moving to Bayern Munich, where he also won three consecutive league titles. During his first season in the Premier League, Manchester City finished 15 points behind champions Chelsea.

This season the Citizens dominated the Premier League and won the title with five matches to spare."We are delighted with what we have done and the way we have done it," Guardiola said. "At the start of the season, you never know what is going to happen. You just have to prepare the team well and the title was the consequence. We've seen in recent seasons how the team who won the Premier League has not even qualified for the Champions League the following year so making back-to-back titles in this league will be tough but we accept the challenge."

Manchester City are 4/6 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title again next season.

    "Pep Guardiola: Premier League harder to win than Bundesliga and LaLiga'

    Seriously...not much of a news Mr Guardiola!

    First of all there's a lot more even teams in the battle for the top places in the PL - so called "big 6".

    Secondly he was a manager of dominators in Spain and Germany so yeah it's tougher in England.
    OK, he maybe got some of a competition in Spain but Bundesliga is a joke of a title race,when Bayern have a poor season they winning the title with a 10-15 points gap..we couldn't even speak of a comparison.
