Former BVB midfielder believes Bundesliga will become less appealing as Bayern’s dominance continues.

Despite being a constant rival for

Bayern Munich

in Bundesliga,

Borussia Dortmund

are not experiencing their best run this season as they are currently standing fifith in the table, seven points outside the top-four zone.

Manchester City


Ilkay Gundogan

, who won the Bundesliga with Dortmund back in 2012, believes Bayern’s continuous reign over Bundesliga will make the league less appealing ‘to the international audience’.

In an interview with

Funke Media Group

, Gundogan said:

"In the Bundesliga I wish that Dortmund or RB Leipzig could at least compete with FC Bayern in the medium term.

"Should Bayern continue to set themselves apart from the competition even further in the next few years, then we can assume that the league will unfortunately become less appealing and interesting to the international audience.”

Despite leading in the Premier League with Manchester City, the 30-year-old believes there is a clear difference in quality between the German and the English top flights.

"I think that here in England we have more quality in the league.

"Not only at the top, but above all in the middle of the table for teams that don't play in Europe.

"The top teams have also been playing with the best coaches in the world for a long time."
