What They're Saying

"It's not what it's built up to be, believe me. … This thing, training with a foreign club, they don’t really care about that player. The big clubs are in competition three times a week, so you're training with the reserve team or the academy team. … We’ve been doing it for 15 years, just to let you people know. This is not a revelation where someone has discovered you could do that. For the most, part it’s OK, but it really doesn't move anyone further along, to be honest with you."
