Raphael Varane believes the Premier League is the best football competition in the world.
The Frenchman joined Manchester United last summer after a decade long stint at Spanish side Real Madrid.
Speaking to Inside United, Varane spoke of his transition to English football.
“The intensity is very different,” he admitted. “The pace of the game is a really high level. It’s a great experience. I like the atmosphere around the stadiums.
“I like the mentality. It’s very intense but always in good spirit and very positive. This experience for me is great.”
He added: “The games are very difficult. You can’t be relaxed, you can be winning a game and you know if you have 10 minutes to play, anything can happen.
“I think it’s the best league in the world and the intensity is absolutely amazing. Every team has players with top quality.
“Tactically, it’s a very high level and there are a lot of players and coaches from everywhere. So it’s a mix about different cultures and different styles of players and of mentality.
“I think that is why the league is top because it’s the best from everywhere, you know [laughs].”
