Thanks for finding your way to my page. My name is Mark Lovell and I am a freelance sports journalist and translator, specializing in German football - offering features, previews, translations, match reports, blogs, ratings, podcasts, live opinions, reaction, punditry and interviews in English. With betting industry experience and expertise, I can also provide insightful analysis and betting previews. With the 2018 World Cup set to be staged in Russia, I hope my Royal Air Force Russian linguist skills might come in useful too. Following Brexit, I am now a German citizen too and speak fluent German.
I write in English for a wide variety of print and digital clients including BBC Sport, ESPN, 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.
