Argentina ex-international Hernán Jorge Crespo, has said that he was delighted to be in Nigeria for the first time.
Crespo said this in a chat with newsmen in Lagos on Saturday.
In attendance were Nigeria’s ex-internationals — Taribo West, Augustine Eguavoen, Mutiu Adepoju and Samson Siasia.
Crespo attributed the success of his over 18 years football career to respect for others which, he said, was one of the fundamental values of life.
“As a young player, I love the game of football but one fundamental thing I learnt along the way was respect for the game, my team mates and fans of football.
“As I grew older in football, I also learnt that it was very important to respect my opponents as well; indeed, it has been a worthwhile experience for me.
“I am in Nigeria because I want to have the opportunity to meet people, to support my passion and most importantly support Heineken and their vision for the UEFA Champions League,” he said.
