My friend, i could speak all day!! Both these players went to the second city of Greece, Salonika, one plays for Aris, the other PAOK (Vitolo played tonight in the play-offs and plays most games, very popular player in PAOK).
However, some catalans have been making much money...Manel Ferrer, agent extraordinaire! He flooded AEK and Aris with Spanish/latin players...so many spanish have played, or continue to play in Greece... I even wrote an article for marca but they don't publish it!!
Even now, most the good teams in Greece have spanish coach and players... Greece Super League = Segunda Division!
This year there are far less than before because of the economic crisis, but still it looks crazy... This is this season:

What is mad is that the list for Brazilians and Argentinians playing in Greece is 100 times bigger...
Greeks must have latin players..
