Football is much more than a sport or even a business: it is the opportunity to give away for those who became successful thanks to the black and white ball (which tends to be everything but black and white now by the way, but this is another marketing issue). Last night in Paris, Châtelet Theater, the most prestigious individual award for a football player, Ballon … Continue reading Bambali Ballon d’Or
