The H&H Greatest Ranger Ever 2020 – Christmas 2020

Gheorghe Hagi – The Interview

By Jamie Currie. There is no denying Gheorghe Hagi’s standing within the world of football. Hagi is a Romanian football legend. He made 124 appearances for his country from 1983 until 2000, making him the second most-capped player of all-time behind Dorinel Munteanu, who amassed an incredible 134 caps.
