Former Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sunday Oliseh has picked the Bundesliga as the best league in the world, rating it above the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1.
The 45-year-old enjoyed success playing in the German top-flight after arriving at the European country in 1995, joining Koln and he spent two seasons with the side, featuring in 54 league games.
The defensive midfielder moved to Ajax and then to Juventus before he signed for Dortmund in 2000, where he won the league title and helped his club finish as runners-up in the 2002 Uefa Cup.
Having played in Nigeria, Belgium, Italy and Netherlands, Oliseh feels the German top-flight cannot be rivalled by any league in the world.
“The Bundesliga is the best league in the world; it’s a complete league. It’s a league where you see the offensive and the defensive, mid-play and free-flowing transition football,” Oliseh told the Punch.
“It’s the best-organised league in my opinion. What makes the Bundesliga so special is that it’s the only league in the world with a full capacity crowd in the stadium every weekend.
“At Dortmund, you get 83,000 fans and Koln now command 50,000 spectators every fortnight. As a player, there is no need to worry about financial issues. The Bundesliga was a learning curve for me and it helped me polish my coaching career.”
