Here are our heroes!
In the #EtnoligaPlus series, we chose eight players who talk about our league from their perspective. They are not representative in any way, because everyone in the Etnoliga is different, everyone has their own history and point of view. Who are they, where do they come from, how did they end up in the Etnoliga? What do they do every day? Did football help them find their way in our country? Every two weeks, another hero and another story.
