Pep Guardiola insisted that premiership is not better than Spanish la liga or Bundesliga

Manchester city boss Pep Guardiola has rubbished the idea that the "intensity" of the Premier League makes it more challenging than other European leagues.

The Catalan was being quizzed after his side's 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday, a result that played out simultaneously with Barcelona's 4-0 mauling of Deportivo La Coruña.

Such an easy win allowed Barca to take off Luis Suarez at half-time, ensuring he'll be well rested for the visit of City on Wednesday in the Champions League.

And when asked if it annoyed him that the Spanish champions had enjoyed a more straightforward weekend, Pep Guardiola was keen to set the record straight when it comes to nonsense about the Premier League being more intense than its continental equivalents.

"I hear a lot of times about the intensity of the Premier League when none of you have been in La Liga or the Bundesliga to know how it is," he said.

"The problem here is maybe that there are more games but the way that they play in Germany is [whistles]... it's amazing. "I think you have to have respect for the other leagues, how they play and the way they play.

"Of course Barcelona is special in how they play, a machine. Three amazing players in front, good counter-attack, the way they build-up so when they win 4-0 it's because they deserve to win 4-0" he concluded.
