My photo story on China's ambitions to develop a world class soccer league made it to the front page of L'Equipe Magazine.
Over the first two months of 2016, over 400 million US$ have been invested by Chinese football clubs to bring in star coaches and players from Europe, Latin America, and Africa. Xi Jinping loves this sport and no efforts- and certainly not money- are spared to bring China to the first rank of world soccer.
On assignment for L'Equipe in Guangzhou, I went to shoot China's champion club, Evergrande playing and winning on its home turf against Changchun. Lots of fun!
