Thanks for finding your way to my page. My name is Mark Lovell and I am a British freelance sports journalist specializing in German football - offering features, previews, translations, match reports, blogs, ratings, podcasts, live opinions, reaction, punditry and interviews. After two decades in Germany, I can also speak the language fluently and also became a German citizen last year. With betting industry experience and expertise, I provide insightful analysis and betting previews. With the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia looming, I hope my Russian linguist skills, gained in the Royal Air Force in Berlin might come in useful.
I write in English for a wide variety of print and digital clients including ESPN, BBC Sport, FourFourTwo and Bleacher Report. Equally comfortable in a broadcast setting, I'm a regular live TV and Radio guest on international platforms such as CNN WorldSport, TalkSport and Sirius XM. I take a special interest in Bayern Munich and aim to touch on the burning footballing issues of the day, providing the kind of insight you only get by travelling the stadiums of Germany and Europe.
