Rafael Márquez confident MLS will soon be better than the Liga MX
Mexico legend Rafael Márquez believes Major League Soccer will soon be better than the Liga MX because it has a better structure and is more organised.
One of the best footballers in the history of Mexico, Rafael Márquez, was asked to give his opinion about the Liga MX and Major League Soccer (MLS). His opinion is highly valued because he played in both leagues during his successful career as a soccer player.
In Márquez's opinion, MLS has a better structure and it is more organised than the Liga MX. He also believes that the bosses in Mexico don’t manage the league correctly and they aren’t transparent with players, clubs and fans.
“We know that the football league in Mexico is not managed correctly and for that reason we aren’t growing as we should. Other leagues like MLS are doing things right, they have a great structure, are transparent and very well organised,” said Márquez during an interview with Fox Sports.
His experience in MLS
The former Mexico international played in Major League Soccer in 2010 with New York Red Bulls after being with F.C. Barcelona for seven seasons. His arrival was considered very important because he had won many trophies in Spain and many fans were excited to see the defender in different stadiums in the United States.
Márquez was paired with Thierry Henry in New York and he played a total of 50 games, scoring once and supplying eight assists during his time in MLS. The Mexico legend also managed to qualify for the playoffs twice, losing in the quarter-finals.
