Thomas Tuchel still rates the English Premier League higher than the rest of the European leagues, including the German Bundesliga.
Tuchel has had stints in the Bundesliga, French Ligue 1 and Premier League in his managerial career, winning multiple trophies across all leagues, but the German still rates the EPL higher.
According to SB Nation, the Bayern Munich manager explained in a recent interview that the Premier League is at the highest level due to the demands of the league.
“The Premier League is more robust and demands even more from the players than the Bundesliga. That’s certainly my impression. Mentally, physically and psychologically, it’s at the highest level.
”Tuchel led former club Chelsea to the UEFA Champions League title in 2021, beating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the final in an all-English final.
