In Matmut Atlantic,

So, at the time, we almost called Gérard López. Why ? Tell the owner and president of Girondins de Bordeaux that we had (finally) found him a team. Well, sure, some are maybe a little advanced in age, but they could still do the mesh with a little bit of preparation. In Ligue 2, of course! These are the eleven lined up for the Navy and White this Wednesday at the Matmut Atlantique during the charity match in favor of the Les Liens du Cœur association that helps people with heart defects: Roux – Ferrié, Koscielny, Saveljic, Chalmé – Ducasse, Sané, Plasil-Saivet, Pauleta, Laslandes.

For the record, as soon as the starting gun was fired, the eagle of the Azores had already planted two. And gently, of course! Smiles, hugs… Everyone was very happy to meet again, like during the 140th anniversary of Girondins de Bordeaux a few months ago. An atmosphere that contrasts of course with the descent into hell of his favorite club and the very likely descent of the same to Ligue 2 this Saturday on the occasion of the last day of L1. Therefore, it was the right time to hand them the microphone and, above all, to listen to them.

A lot of “sadness”, a little “anger”

As always, the great Cheick Diabaté, back home, was the most emotional to the point of losing his incredible smile: “I never would have imagined seeing Girondins go down to Ligue 2. I’m sad. My heart hurts. “Sadness, her namesake, Lassina Diabaté” feels a lot “too. The same for Pedro Miguel Pauleta who continues to call on everyone to “keep their heads up” to get up tomorrow.

But the “blow is hard” for Lamine Sané, former Bordeaux midfielder: “I grew up at Bordeaux, I played at Girondins, I’m a fan of the club. There is a lot of disappointment. Didier Tholot feels “a little angry” at this situation. Surely the current coach of Pau FC had not imagined that he might find himself against his usual club in Ligue 2 next season.Although “we had already been hot last season”, recalls the emblematic Marius Trésor, “I never thought I would see Girondins fall” The last descent dates back to 1991.

Koscielny symbol

So what to do now? “We’re going to wait and see what can happen because we don’t know anything,” says 1999 French champion Lilian Laslandes bitterly. She continues: “I’m sorry because we all love this club. Things have changed and we will have to put some values ​​back into this club. “A wish that takes on all its meaning when a certain… Laurent Koscielny appears on the lawn. Yes, yes, the international defender donned the Girondins de Bordeaux shirt as his ambassador, just three months after being kicked out of the professional team by the club’s management. Ubuesco. Mole.

On the same subject, Lassina Diabaté asks the leaders to “learn the lessons of this season” because for the former midfielder “there are 90% of things to change. “Bordeaux has been living beyond its means for years. Today, the club will have to get back on the right track and get back up as quickly as possible”, insists Marius Trésor. Everyone hopes to see the club quickly find its way to L1. For this reason, Cheick Diabaté, a true local idol, even says that he is ready to return home: “I could never say no to Bordeaux, you have to know that. But hey, it’s not me who decides, it’s up to them (the leaders). We’ll see, maybe, why not. Suffice it to say that ever since this declaration, the people of Bordeaux have been demanding its return.

Didier Tholot, who often made standing calls to his former club, will say no more: “Everyone knows my attachment to Girondins de Bordeaux. “Lamine Sané, claims to have offered his services. Waiting to find out more about the future of the club, for the great Cheick, “the only solution today is to fight for Girondins to be promoted quickly to Ligue 1 because Bordeaux is not a Ligue 2 team”. 1”, concludes Pauleta.
