Former Olympique Lyon and Chelsea midfielder, Florent Malouda, has scored again while in action for struggling Egyptian side, Wadi Degla.
The 35-year old attacking midfielder who has continued to play active football despite aging scored his third straight goal for the club in the Egyptian League.
Athletico Madrid striker, Fernando Torres has said that the international break has come at the right time for the Spanish team.
He believes that this will allow the players to have a breather and recharge their batteries.
Athletico Madrid’s title hopes were dented on Saturday when they were beaten at Sporting Gijon. Their previous defeat in La Liga came on January 30th. The defeat ended a nine-game unbeaten run for Athletico Madrid and put them nine points behind leader, Barcelona.
Even at the age of 35, FlorentMalouda has not shown any signs of hanging up his boots and retiring as he continues performing consistently and it has recently been announced that the French player has joined WadiDegla of Egpyt.
WadiDegla is an Egyptian side that is performing in the Premier League of Egypt and they are positioned in the bottom spots of the league with only a few points separating them from the relegation zone but with this new signing, the head chiefs of the club are hoping that Malouda can help push the club into the higher section of the standings.
Roma legend Francesco Totti is all set to retire after having played for just one club.
He is one of the few players in the world to hold the title of being a one club man. Totti represents more than just 20 years of service for Roma. He has been part of the club from the bottom and has helped them win numerous trophies in the last two decades. Hypothetically, the striker says that he would have been suited to any other Spanish club too because he feels that his style will settle well in Spanish football.
Paris St Germain continued their dominance of the French league with a 2-0 victory against Bastia, but manager Laurent Blanc was a relieved man after this game since he felt that it was always going to be a very difficult encounter.
PSG have now taken four consecutive victories in the domestic league. The team will be hoping to continue this run into the Champions League were a difficult game against Real Madrid awaits them. For the time being, this victory againstBastia gives them some breathing space at the top of the French league.
Malouda joined the French side Metz on September of 2014 but it hasn’t been going well for the experienced midfielder as he only managed to score 3 goals in 28 appearances and the 35 year old player is now being connected with a possible move to the Indian Super League as well as with the Argentinean club River Plate.
According to a close source who knows what is going around involving the current situation of FlorentMalouda and a possible move to the Indian League, the source said: "Yes, he has been approached. He seems interested in coming to India. He might probably be the guy,"
The French footballer FlorentMalouda has so far performed in 6 clubs including: Chateaurous, Guingamp, Lyon, Chelsea, Trabzonspor and Metz all in that same order.
It was during his time with the Premier League side Chelsea where he truly managed to make a name for himself as he lifted some of the biggest and most prestigious pieces of silverware in the world football such as: Champions League and the Premier League.
FlorentMalouda was even considered to be Chelsea’s best player in the 2009-10 season as he was awarded with the Players’ Player of the Year award.
Metz have been one for his teams in Europe this season. The French club are struggling at the foot of the French Ligue One and the prospect of attaining safety in the remaining few months of the campaign look highly unlikely.
The club are four points adrift of safety after having played 24 matches. Despite this, manager Albert Cartier was confident ahead of the match against table leaders Lyon that his team could avoid relegation with improved consistency. The trip to face Lyon is almost certainly likely to end up as a defeat given that Lyon are showing the kind of form that gave them seven league titles in succession.
Former Chelsea winger Florent Malouda was unable to prevent Metz from suffering yet another defeat in the league.
The experienced former French international scored in the 3-1 defeat against Olympic Marseille, who have been one of the strongest teams in the French league this season. He scored just three minutes after Metz had conceded. However, Marseille proved that they had the resilience to get victories even during the toughest matches. Ayew scored just before the hour mark while an injury time goal from Payet made things safe for Marseille. They retain the top spot in the French Ligue One.
Gareth Bale has said that his reunion with his former club Tottenham Hotspur is very much possible when he finishes his career at Santiago Bernabeu.
Bale had been a part of Tottenham Hotspur for 6 years before he was bought by the Spanish club Real Madrid.
Bale has been proving to be a fruitful winger for the Whites. He has settled down quite well there in Spain.
The Spurs, on the other hand, have missed Bale to the core. Their attack doesn’t seem to be as stingy as it was when the 25-year old winger was there.
According to Bale, he was extremely comfortable at Tottenham and did not want to leave, but, to reject the offer that was put forward by the Los Blancos was quite tough.
