Eastern Europe, Arabia, Japan? Yep, several great teams there. You treat the brazilian league like it's some inferior football country league. The International Federation of Football History & Statistics ranks the brazilian league as the 4th best in the world. The prestigious english football magazine fourfourtwo ranks it as 5th best and you act like it's a shitty league (with teams worse Nordsjślland, BATE Borsivov and Cluj.
No I don't. I didn't say anything about the Brazilian League, you need to learn to read.
I did say though that Corinthians has a bunch of starters who used to play in the J-League, the Polish League, Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc. A bunch of their players tried to, but weren't able to carve out a career in Europe.
That's the make up of their team. These players spend their primes playing in those leagues. Those are not good leagues.
