Football Further is a website about football in England and France, as well as a home for the work produced in a professional capacity by its author. It is part of the Guardian Sport Network.
I’m a sport reporter for the Agence France-Presse international news agency. After four years in Paris, I moved to London in October 2012 to lead AFP’s coverage of English football.
As a French football specialist, I’ve been interviewed several times on BBC Radio 5 Live, usually concerning the wildly oscillating fortunes of the French national team, and I’ve also appeared on BT Sport, BBC News 24, CNN, the BBC World Service, BBC London, BBC Ulster, talkSPORT, Sky Sports News Radio, The Guardian Football Weekly podcast and France 24.
Aside from my full-time work with AFP, I’ve written for websites including ESPN FC, ITV Sport, Yahoo! Eurosport, When Saturday Comes, Ligue1.com and Betfair.
