Who is Pascal Chimbonda?
Born in Guadeloupe but raised in France, Chimbonda began his professional career in 1998 with Le Havre, where he featured over 100 times combined for the clubs first team and B team before moving to Bastia in 2003. In 2005 he moved to Premier League club Wigan Athletic where after enduring a decent season with the club he was signed by Tottenham Hotspur a year later. After two seasons with Spurs he later moved on to fellow top flight club Sunderland before briefly returning to Spurs in 2009. In the summer of 2009 he signed for Blackburn Rovers which is where he remained until 2011 when he joined Football Championship club Queens Park Rangers. During the 2011–12 season he was one of a number of ex Premier League players who turned out for Doncaster Rovers but he went on to be released at the end of the season. Having remained clubless for the following year, Chimbonda dropped six leagues down to sign non-contract terms with Market Drayton Town, remaining at them briefly before joining Carlisle.
Despite initially playing his international football for Guadeloupe, Chimbonda went on to be selected for the France squad for the 2006 World Cup, but he was an unused substitute in each of France's matches including the final, in which they lost on a penalty shootout to Italy. His only French cap came in a World Cup warm-up match against Denmark.
