The English Premier League is the most glamorous of all the European leagues and undoubtedly the most popular too. The EPL is home to players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane and Kevin de Bruyne. Whilst top coaches such as Pep Guardiola, Juergen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Claudio Ranieri all ply their trade in the English League.

These big names attract the best deals and best sponsorship offers which in turn translates to more money being paid to everyone involved. This is why the English Premier League is the highest-paying league and the most popular too.
