Former Barcelona winger Ronald De Boer believes Spanish clubs are the best in the world as they currently have the best players.
Speaking after both Madrid clubs advanced to the Champions League semi-finals, where they will now play each other, the former Dutch ace believes the top clubs are equally strong in La Liga.
“The best club players in the world are playing at the Spanish clubs,” De Boer explained.
“In the last few years the Spanish teams have dominated in Europe and there’s been nobody close to Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, but the best players in the world are at the Spanish clubs.
“Real Madrid are quite stable this year – there is no speculation over the manager and relatively little over the players, and performances might not be fantastic but they’re generally strong.
“They can score from every position, they have so many stars – they can just put eleven players on the pitch and they will play with each other.
“Barcelona are more in my eyes a team with a stronger template of how they want to play and perform, at the minute I believe the two are equal.”
