Morrow: Top MLS Clubs Could Play in EPL
Yahoo Sports, March 26th, 2008 3:30PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Few would contest that the quality of play in MLS has improved markedly since the league's inception 13 years ago, but FC Dallas coach Steve Morrow thinks the league has improved so much that, "I genuinely believe we are at the stage now where the top sides could survive in the English Premiership." And while most pundits -- including those in the U.S. -- would disagree, there can be no doubt that Europe has taken notice.

Clubs have certainly taken notice of players like Chivas USA's Brad Guzan and former Kansas City Wizards striker Eddie Johnson, but they should also note "that when teams come over here, the MLS clubs are very competitive," Morrow says.

"A lot of the problem is that there is a certain level of ignorance from people who criticize MLS," he continues. "It is ignorance about how good this league really is, and also about them not knowing enough about the international game. But things are changing gradually and the league is taking big strides forward." Morrow should know: he spent 13 years of his career playing in the English Premiership before coming to Dallas as a player in 2002.
