Tiger Woods, the fox whisperer?

Born in Guinea in 1986, Traore’s biography on his official website claims his passion for football began when he was a young child playing on his local streets. He then moved to France in 2000 and after being dropped from Paris St Germain, took to performing for crowds all over the country.

Pataraya has previously pulled a helicopter that weighed seven tonnes.
Reports suggest that Chelsea are looking to add Brazilian star Bernard to their ranks and rate the player highly. Bernard who plays his football in Brazil for Atletico Mineiro is considered to be similar to Chelsea’s latest star Oscar.
As a 19-year-old Bernard was linked to a handful of clubs in Russia and Qatar and is currently thought to be on Liverpool’s radar. In a recent interview with Globo Esporte he revealed that several European clubs—the names of which he would not reveal—had made enquiries as to his signature and admitted that he might be tempted to make a move in the January transfer window.
“If there is any interest at the end of the [Brazilian] season and it is in the interests of both parties, let’s talk,” he said.
