In my latest piece for FourFourTwo, where I write as a feature columnist on French and African football, I take a look at Paris Saint-Germain's brilliant centre backThiago Silva and his rise to becoming one of if not THE best defender in the world.

Paris Saint-German, an ambitious Ligue 1 club, are looking to sign yet another key player to their squad this summer. Bacary Sagna, a right back, is looking for a way out of Arsenal this summer and PSG seems the most likely destination.
You know, someone should've thought of this idea sooner: put Joey Barton and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on rival clubs in the same league, and everybody will come out a winner. Neither men has been known to hold their tongue for very long.
Joey got his in last night during a cup game in France, telling Zlatan that he has a "big fucking nose.

Paris Saint-German made a pretty big splash in the transfer market this winter. Signing English midfield legend David Beckham, PSG snatched all the headlines. PSG has had a habitat of being big spenders in the transfer windows, since Qatar Investment Authority became the sole shareholder of the club.

Basketball is not the only sport where buzzer beaters happen.
Tottenham Hotspurs's midfielder Mousa Dembélé proved it on Wednesday's crash against Lyon. The 25-year-old netted a 90' minute goal to seal the Spurs's berth in the Europa League's round of 16 on a 1-1 draw.
Going into the Ligue 1 campaign, there were a few clubs expected to be able to challenge nouveau-rich PSG, and two of these such clubs are Lille and Montpellier. Lille lost lots of quality over the past two seasons when Gervinho left for Arsenal and Eden Hazard left for Chelsea, however they were able to buy French maestro Marvin Martin and Ivorian winger Salomon Kalou, two players expected to soften the blow left by the departure of Gervinho and Hazard.
Leonardo, the PSG director not the Ninja Turtle, isn't exactly having a fine few weeks. After Thiago Silva was sent off for lightly placing his hands on the referee last week, Leonardo decided it would be a smart idea to bump the referee in the tunnel. This may result in a suspension or worse, a points deduction for PSG.
At this point it's fairly obvious there are very few ways of stopping Zlatan. The man scores goals everywhere he goes no matter what the defense may try. So Nice defender Renato Civelli went a little off book and decided maybe Zlatan can be stopped with love and affection. No, he can't he can't only be utterly bewildered.

There are a number of things in this world which are worthy of a hunger strike. Poverty. War. Racism. Ligue 1 stadium bans are somewhere in there too, apparently. At least according to Jo Bonavita, Bastia's 73 year old official, who will be doing without the supple fruits of this world in protest over his beloved club's stadium ban for multiple instances of violence.
Those look like some sort of concept shoe Nike whipped up for a Cristiano Ronaldo versus a diamond-encrusted Koenigsegg commercial or something. But they're not they're Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's warm-up booties from Monday's match against Lyon. They have Swarovski crystals delicately placed atop the actual shoe, and cost 3,000 euros to custom bedazzle over the span of 50 hours.
Flu Campeão! Fluminense win Al Kass International Cup 2013 is a post from: Just Football
After two weeks of exciting football involving the youth teams of some of the biggest clubs in world football, Brazilian champions Fluminense have won the Al Kass International Cup 2013 beating Paris Saint-Germain on penalties.
Of all the lands one would not expect this from, France is it. The French have this almost mystical ability for upsets in their domesticc cup competitions, ushering a couple of geezers loosely organized into the semi-finals of one of them almost annually it seems. But Rennais isn't a small club by French standards it's a Ligue 1 club, which is enough.
