This is a debate I have had with my friends several times over the years but I wanted to open it up to garner some fresh opinions.
What do you think players care more about: Their club or the country?
What do you as a fan care about? Your club or your country?
For example, if you could choose your favorite club to win the UEFA champions league (and not qualify the next 7 years) or have your country win the World Cup (and not qualify for the next one) which would you choose?
My friends were at the consensus that country was more important for both fans and players. However, none of us grew up fans of a club, so that loyalty is not really there.
The past few years I have become of the opinion that players care more about their club but am curious as to what you think on both points.
