Football Further is a website about football in England and France, as well as a depository for the work produced in a professional capacity by its author. It is a member 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 the BBC World Service, BBC News 24, BBC London, talkSPORT, Sky Sports News Radio,The Guardian Football Weekly podcast, and France 24 (follow link for video).
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 the Betfair blog.
