A lot of people would argue that some of the best footballers in the entire world are playing in the Premier League, but not Alan Shearer. The legendary striker shared his opinion while being a guest on MOTD and it seems not a lot of fans agree with him.
According to Shearer, the only world class player from the whole Premier League plays in Manchester City and his name is Sergio Aguero. Nonetheless, despite that it’s hard to argue that the Argentinian is not among the best on the globe, it’s hard to say that the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Paul Pogba among others are not worthy of being put in the same category.
In the video below, Shearer can be heard making the statement and afterwards, there some reactions from PL fans:

Anybody who says Alexis is not world class is a hater— Gerald (@GeeeTweets) October 30, 2016

Did Alan Shearer just say Aguero is the only world class player in the league? What an utter moron.— NW3Gooner (@NW3Gooner) October 29, 2016
