Passionate about sport, cinema and television (on screen as well as behind) since his childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilful with the keyboard in hand than with the ball, he decided to mainly cover a much-loved sport, criticized and hated both (football) and a sport that is not (wrestling).

Since the summer of 2017, Kylian Mbappé has been the delight of Paris Saint-Germain, who managed to extend him at the end of last season despite interest from Real Madrid.

Arsenal didn’t always play at their best so it was quite complicated. At first it was easy, as soon as we spoke to a player, he wanted to sign him. However, if you don’t get results, it’s hard to bring in top players to help the team.continues the former recruiter ofArsenal. That’s why it’s important to stay at the top for as long as possible. It’s so much easier.
