Andy Hooper: My favourite image of the week... Florent Malouda

By Andy Hooper for the Daily Mail

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Sportsmail's top snappers Andy Hooper, Graham Chadwick and Kevin Quigley will be showcasing their favourite image of the week.

Here, Andy chooses this capture of Florent Malouda as his standout selection...


Here is Florent Malouda in profile on his way to take a corner for Chelsea during their FA Cup victory over Portsmouth.

Even with really long lenses it's difficult to take close-up pictures of players' faces or heads. Throw-ins and corners, when the players are close to the photographers,provide good opportunities to take these detail shots

This is all about Malouda's hair as without the intricate design the image wouldn't be as strong.
