And you also have players like Salah who scored 16 goals in Serie A and 32 the season after when he was transfered to premier league.French league is farmers league, let’s not pretend it isn’t. BL is considered weaker league in general as compared to Spain and England etc, as there are many top attacking players over there who couldn’t do it elsewhere. (Werner, Havertz, Dembele, Mkhit, Kagawa etc)
But yes, both are good players who does well in CL and international stage too. I am not questioning their talent at all, but just saying their total numbers maybe inflated as they are playing in league where it’s far easier to score as compared to Spain and England.
France and Germany are indeed weaker leagues then spain or england (well i actually think that bundes might be in the mix with spain this season) but calling them "farmers leagues" when players who perform well in these competition do equally well when the reach the CL is a bit silly imo.
