Turkish football club Fenerbahce's former defender Adil Rami joined Russia's Sochi on Saturday.

He played for France's Lille and Olympique de Marseille, Italian team AC Milan and Spanish clubs Valencia and Sevilla.

Rami, 34, won the French league title in 2011 while he was a Lille player. He also lifted the UEFA Europa League trophy with Sevilla in 2016.
