Philippe Mexes

Mexes became one of the most sought after defenders in European football as he emerged through the ranks at Auxerre at the turn of the century and, after being linked with a host of English Premier League clubs, he eventually opted to ply his trade in Italy’s Serie A.


First with Roma and since last year with AC Milan, Mexes has proved his worth in a league where defenders are expected to be polished and consistent, and his displays at club level have helped him to become an important member of the France national side.


After playing in five of his nation’s Euro 2012 qualifiers, scoring his first international goal against Luxembourg in March of last year, Mexes has cemented his position as a firm favourite of coach Laurent Blanc. So long as his persistent injuries worries do not resurface, he should see plenty of tournament action this summer.
