"I've seen a lot of stuff on social media around -- 'Oh, you know, this is not a good decision for the guys from a national team perspective' -- and to me, that's complete BS. This is one of the best clubs in the world from a development perspective. The opportunity and the tools that are available here, including Peter [Vermes] and the way he trains these guys, is world-class. So any reference or thought that it's not a first-class opportunity for these guys to be here, to me, is just complete crap."
