“During training, Ben, and I each contributed our own strength for our money! So far, he is the best defensive player I have encountered in my career. The team that chooses him will get Quite athletes and very good people. I think Ben will have a big “show” [jeudi] He said: “If a few teams surpassed him, it would be wrong.”
