Robert Pires



Robert Pires
A very attacking midfielder who started out as a winger. Has played some of the best football of his career with French club Marseille, tending to supply the strikers from a deep role with his masterful distribution skills.

His form has struggled this season, coinciding with Marseille's poor run but there's no doubting his abilities.

Pires has played with Reims and also with Metz, where he made an eye-catching performance against Newcastle in the UEFA Cup.

Made his international debut against Mexico in August 1996 and there is some feeling that Pires could finally come of age this summer on the international stage.
