Julio Cesar claims that Major League Soccer rivals the Premier League in terms of atmosphere and organisation.

Toronto goalkeeper Julio Cesar has claimed that the Major League Soccer rivals the Premier League in terms of organisation and atmosphere.

The 34-year-old, who spent two seasons in England with Queens Park Rangers before linking up with the Canadian club on loan, made his league debut in the Reds' 2-1 victory over Seattle Sounders last weekend.

"Queens Park Rangers in the first year was wonderful, other than the relegation," Cesar told Globo Esporte. "The Premier League has a fantastic organisation, the stadiums are always full and there is a great respect for the players from the fans.

"I must say though that what I'm seeing in the MLS is not much different from what I saw in England. The organisation is wonderful and the fans are very creative, it is one thing that I never thought I would find here."

Toronto are back in action this weekend with a home match against DC United.
