Rugby's Boudjellal signs with Eurosport
One of the most controversial and opinionated figures in the world of rugby union has joined Eurosport.
Mourad Boudjellal, President of Top 14 giants RC Toulon, will front Mourad de Toulon – translated to Mourad of Toulon – a new short-form series that will see him fearlessly attack the key issues of the game. From domestic rugby to the Six Nations, the French national team to European tournaments, no-one will be spared.
Boudjellal is the latest big name to join Eurosport’s stable of high-profile talent that already includes Eric Cantona and John McEnroe as the Commissioners of Football and Tennis respectively, as well as a list of star-studded athletes past and present such as Lindsey Vonn (winter sports), Ronnie O’Sullivan (snooker), Boris Becker (tennis) and Juan-Antonio Flecha (cycling).
'Mourad de Toulon' will launch on Eurosport.fr and French rugby website Rugbyrama as well as air on Eurosport France’s weekly rugby show Les Tontons Flankers, starting on Thursday 7 December, with regular shows throughout the season.
