700 professional matches for Mathieu Valbuena

As reported by L’Équipe, French midfielder Mathieu Valbuena has made his 700th professional appearance during Olympiakos’ Europa League fixture against Qarabag, which his side lost 0-3 at home.

The attacking midfielder came on as a late substitute against Qarabag on Thursday evening. The 38-year-old former international has played most of his matches for OM (331) after spells with Dinamo Moscow, Lyon and Fenerbahce.

n an interview with RMC Sport in June, Valbuena discussed the end of his legal battle with Karim Benzema, after the latter decided to drop his appeal over his one-year suspended sentence for complicity in blackmail.

“It’s true that I was also tired of all of this and I’ve suffered a lot from it. I’ve definitely been penalised by it in a sporting sense. It’s a chapter which is finally ending. For me it lasted far too long but that’s how justice works. I can finally move on. I’m not bitter at all and I’ve always said what I had to, regarding what happened. I’m not going to go back on this long story but the most important thing for me is to turn the page.”
