"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

Diego Costa watched on as his new club SBOBETAtletico Madrid beat Sevilla 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga on Saturday.
Costa, who finally secured a return from Chelsea on Thursday, cannot take the field until January, but he could at least revel in the club's form as they secured a third straight league win.
Yannick Carrasco set Atletico en-route to victory, breaking the deadlock after a goalless first half.
Carrasco rounded Sergio Rico and tucked in to hand the hosts the advantage before Antoine Griezmann doubled the lead.
The France international was played in by Filipe Luis before firing across Rico to settle the argument and leave Atletico with two wins from two in their new stadium.
Diego Rolan's late strike scrambled 10-man Malaga a 3-3 draw with Athletic Bilbao.
Athletic led 3-1 after 70 minutes thanks to Inaki Williams' brace and a fourth-minute penalty from Aritz Aduriz.
Rolan claimed the first of his double after 35 minutes to keep Malaga in touch, but the hosts had Zdravko Kuzmanovic sent off early in the second half.
Malaga shrugged off the setback however, with Paul Baysse and Rolan completing the comeback late on.
Real Madrid won 2-1 at Alaves thanks to two goals from Dani Ceballos.
