Abel started out watching and playing soccer in Hungary, before falling in love with the Bundesliga in the mid – 90s (thanks to Kicker and Sat1’s Ran). Abel is faithful to BVB, but also endlessly fascinated by the emergence of new teams and talents from Germany.
His first English love was the Liverpool teams of Macca and Robbie Fowler, but these days he just roots for the underdogs.
His Spanish allegiance is to FC Barcelona, which is more aesthetic in nature than anything, but that doesn't prevent him from enjoying the greatness of Luka Modric or Toni Kroos.
He loves to talk/read/write/think about soccer! Otherwise, you can find him working in publishing, teaching ESL, and/or drinking craft beer – not necessarily at the same time, or in that order. Abel tweets at @VanbastenESL and at @BundesPL
