What do they say?
“I went there (Livorno), I met with their leaders. The project was interesting, it was playing 3-5-2, a formation I like. But after thinking, I chose Crystal Palace. I also had some contact with Brugge and Dinamo Moscow. I refused some proposals. Just ask any player where he dreams of signing and he will tell you the Premier League. This really is the best championship in the world.”
