Guedioura: Football brings different cultures together at Watford

Watford squad consists of players from 18 different nationalities.


Amid the current refugee struggles in the places like Syria and Libya, French-born Algeria midfielder Adlene Guedioura believes football is something that can unite different countries and cultures, especially at the Premier League club.

Guedioura told The Express: "The football makes things easier. It is the only thing in the world that can bring everyone together from whatever country they come from.

"This is a good message for everyone right now: you can be together. We are lucky because it brings us all together in the same place even though we don't all speak the same language.

"When you see so many nationalities playing at the same level it sends a message that this really is something special. It is also an example for all the other leagues that you can beat racial issues. England is a good example that we can all get on together.

"Everyone gets on. It is something special that they all come from different parts of the world and are getting to know new cultures."
