Premier League Is The Strongest League In The World – Samuel Kalu


Watford new signing Samuel Kalu has rated the Premier League as ‘the strongest’ in the world ahead of Ligue 1.

The 24-year-old joined the Hornets from Bordeaux on a three-and-a-half-year deal on Wednesday to become the fourth Nigerian in Roy Hodgson’s team.

The former Gent and AS Trencin forward described his move to the English top-flight as a dream come true for him and he is ready to grab the chance to show his talents.

In addition, the Nigeria winger revealed he had a conversation with Senegal’s Mbaye Niang who previously played for the Hornets.

“When I heard about the opportunity I was feeling grateful. It’s one of my dreams to play in the Premier League, this is what I want. I will be here to give my best,” Kalu told the club’s website.

“I spoke to M’Baye Niang, he was my teammate in Bordeaux, he told me a lot about the Premier League and he was here before, he told me it’s a great club. He said the Premier League is the best league in the world, so I should grab my chance.

“[Slovakia, Belgium and France] are all good leagues but I see the Premier League as more intense, powerful, I see it as the strongest league in the world.

“With my experience from the leagues I have played in, it’s quite similar with Ligue 1 and the Premier League. It’s amazing, every game is like a final, playing against the top clubs in the world.”
