Simeone of Atletico believes that the gulf in class makes the division boring.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has criticised La Liga for being boring as only Barcelona and Real Madrid ever have a chance of winning.
It’s nearly 10 years since another side won the Spanish title, when Valencia lifted the trophy under the guidance of former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.
Yet since then Madrid have held the title three times and Barca an incredible six, a stat which Simeone believes makes football in Spain boring.
“Madrid and Barcelona play in a different league, and this is a boring championship,” the ex-Argentina international was quoted in AS.
“We’ll have to wait until there is a change in the share of television revenue, because this is a two-team league.”
Atleti finished third last season behind the two Spanish giants, but were still 24 points off eventual winners Barca.
Several Spanish sides have hit hard times financially in recent times, with even well established clubs such as Valencia, Malaga and Sevilla struggling to make ends meet.
This is in stark contrast to Los Blancos and the Catalans, who have both once again spent millions of pounds on new talent, which includes £48.6m being paid to Santos for Brazilian superstar Neymar.
Despite the fact that Atletico finished third in 2012/13, Simeone admits that the club have no ambitions of challenging for the title as it is simply not realistic and that the league is truly a two-horse race.
