Moves like Mamadou

Tue, 09 Sep 2014

Following his £17million move from Paris Saint Germain to Liverpool in 2013, French Vice-Captain Mamadou Sakho has, in all honesty, struggled to nail down his place at the heart of Liverpool’s defence. He is a very tough defender [in an interview with beIN he revealed as a boy he had a very tough childhood] and he was in fact a nomad.

Un faux dévot, Tartuffe, qui passe aux yeux du bourgeois Orgon et de sa mère Madame Pernelle pour un saint homme, s’est «impatronisé» dans sa famille. Malgré l’hostilité des siens, Orgon entend le marier à sa fille Mariane, mais le faux dévot est surpris par Damis, le fils de la famille, aux pieds d’Elmire, la seconde femme d’Orgon. Faisant preuve d’une habileté diabolique, le faux dévot retourne cependant la situation en sa faveur, fait chasser Damis, et accepte la donation de tous les biens d’Orgon, ainsi que la garde de papiers compromettants. Devant l’aveuglement obstiné d’Orgon, Elmire tend un piège à l’hypocrite et oblige son mari à se cacher sous la table. Tartuffe est enfin démasqué, mais il est maître de tous les biens d’Orgon; seule l’intervention d’un exempt, envoyé par le souverain, permet d’arrêter Tartuffe et sauve la famille d’un désastre.
