Yorke: Barca/Real Would Compete In EPL

Dwight Yorke, former Manchester United hit-man, believes that Spain have done well in recent years because of their originally ‘confusing’ system, and thinks that Barcelona and Real Madrid would definitely be able to hold their own in the English Premier League.

Yorke  scored 123 Premier League goals, see highlights of his impressive career here!

 

In a recent interview, Soccer-Laduma journalist Joe Crann spoke to Yorke about his football career, and goes on to explain the dominance of Spanish football in recent years.

 

"If you look at their record they’ve dominated in the last five years or so, and rightly so. They brought in a system that not a lot of people could cope with, they had some great players in there, but the system was confusing for people and they believe in it. It’s the same with the Spanish league clubs, they’ve been doing well too," said Yorke. 

 

But does he believe that the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid could cut it in the English Premiership? "I think they’d definitely be up there in the top four, there’s no two ways about that. The pace of the game could be a thing, but they play a fast game too and I don’t see why they couldn’t come to the Premier League and do well.

 

"You look at how (Cristiano) Ronaldo did before he left (Manchester United), he was scoring a lot of goals then, I don’t see any reason why (Lionel) Messi couldn’t do the same if he played there," concluded the former striker.

 

To see the rest of Yorke’s interview, make sure you buy this week’s copy of Soccer-Laduma, where the player speaks about Alex Ferguson's retirement and playing alongside the likes of Andy Cole, a partnership many considered to be the best in the club's history.
