Ligue 1: Why We Watch

He may not be the best player in world football but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in a class of his own.

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Julien Laurens tells us about his love for Ligue 1.
