1997: the descent in Ligue 2

"On that day, there was an invasion of land. I was expecting the worst. But he was a pacifist. The partisans came to greet the work of Bernard Lecomte (editor's note: the president of the time). But it is never easy to manage. I represent the voice of the club, but first and foremost, I am helpful. You have to be careful. In a game like this, you're bound to be sad. But you can not feel the microphone. I must say, "Let's wait." When you fall in Ligue 2, it's difficult. You can not say what you think. But people heard the tone of my voice that I was fighting … Looking back, we know that this passage in Ligue 2 has been good for the club."
