Speaking in an interview with the official Lille website, Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches complimented the quality of Ligue 1.
“It took me time to adapt to my new life, it took me about a month… each league has their weak points and strong points. The French league is very physical, very competitive, there are an enormous amount of talented players. If you take PSG out if it, all the teams are worthy of each other. This is the league that most closely resembles the Premier League of the divisions that I have played in. It is very physical and very quick, you have to constantly be on it.”
