“Look, we’ve had great players play in the European League. In fact, we are the ones and the South Americans and Europeans, we are the ones that have made soccer in the Champions League what it is: the variety, the beauty that comes with it, you know, and now the Arab world has joined in, which is also great,” Oliseh added.
