Landon Donovan has been a great supporter of the MLS as he played in the league during the early stages when the Los Angeles Galaxy was initially created, and as one of the first MLS stars, he was invited to comment on the Leagues Cup match which was disputed between Inter Miami and Nashville SC, and this situation gave Landon Donovan the arguments to throw a dart at Liga MX and ensure that U.S. soccer has already surpassed Mexican soccer.
Landon Donovan heats the rivalry between Liga MX and MLS
Since before the start of the last edition of the Leagues Cup, the main topic of debate was which of the two leagues was superior, and it was demonstrated that MLS has, at the moment, more arguments than Mexican football, as Donovan showed in an interview for Apple TV.
“In my opinion, in the last three, four, or five years it has changed and for me, the MLS teams are a little bit better. It’s good competition because always Liga MX was better and now it’s good if they compete like that.”
“ I think the reason (for the growth) is that everyone wants to play here, in any city, but in the United States, before the competition was low and so was the money. Now, there is a lot of money and the competition is much better, if it continues like this, I think all the best in the world, maybe in five or seven years, will want to play here,” he added.
Donovan and his idea of the greatness of the Leagues Cup.
“I didn’t think it was going to be this big this early (the Leagues Cup), I thought, in five or seven years, but from the first minute, possibly, because there’s Messi. I’ve been surprised by how he’s playing, I thought people and the press talking about everything that’s happened, but he’s changed his team, he’s already the best team in the league, let’s see when MLS starts again,” Donovan concluded at the Apple TV broadcast table.
Landon Donovan knows both leagues, as he played with Leon of Mexico and was the first great figure of the LA Galaxy, so he knows the development of both tournaments and now the title of Inter Miami over Nashville, leaving only one team from Liga MX among the best four of the competition, were the arguments for sentencing that MLS is already the best of the two.
