Tennis legend Becker says English Premier League better than German Bundesliga

 

Tennis legend Boris Becker says the English Premier League (EPL) has left its German counterpart the Bundesliga far behind.

“As sorry as I am for the Bundesliga, the best and most exciting league is the Premier League,” said the 55-year-old football fan on the sidelines of a media event in Munich.

He also placed the English clubs “in a different category” with regard to their investment opportunities.

When the Premier League kicks off the new season at the weekend, Becker is particularly excited about Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

“With Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, who have left for Saudi Arabia, they have lost their midfield,” Becker said.

He added that the team would have to find proper replacements for them, adding that he hoped Klopp would still do well.

Becker predicted a tight Premier League title race and revealed himself as a big fan of ex-Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola.

“How he manages to motivate and inspire the team every time and also to buy the right players impresses me,” Becker said of the Spanish coach of UEFA Champions League winners Manchester City.

 

The tennis legend also gave Arsenal, who signed German international Kai Havertz in the summer, a chance in the title race.

In a recent interview, former Nigerian football star Yakubu Aiyegbeni has revealed that he continues to receive messages and criticisms from fans, years after his infamous miss during the 2010 FIFA World Cup match against South Korea.

The moment, etched into football history, occurred during Nigeria’s crucial group stage game against South Korea. With the score tied at 2-2 and a spot in the knockout stages on the line, Aiyegbeni found himself with what seemed like an open goal opportunity. However, to the shock of fans worldwide, he missed the chance, leaving Nigeria unable to secure the much-needed victory.

 

Despite this moment happening over a decade ago, Aiyegbeni expressed his surprise at the ongoing messages he receives about the miss. “I still get messages from people, different messages,” he stated in the interview. “It’s surprising how that moment still sticks with people, even after all these years.”

The striker, who had a successful career playing for clubs like Everton and Portsmouth in the English Premier League, admitted that the miss was a tough moment in his career. “Of course, it was a big moment, and I wish it had gone differently. But in football, you have highs and lows,” he remarked.
