Speaking to Portuguese newspaper "A Bola", PAOK defender Ricardo Costa talked about his move to Greece and his experience in Qatar.
"I joined the club during a tough period", he said. "The results were not the best possible, there were injuries and the team was criticized. But every change in your life is difficult".
Ricardo Costa really needed that change. "The support from european football fans was necessary for me. When you go to Qatar, you just lose the feeling of a professional footballer. I used to play with football stars and not with the police and the army. It was a completely different reality, that I couldn't accept. Everything was so non professional. It was a shock for me".
