Supporters of the Girondins de Bordeaux will have to wet their necks on Friday when they see the team again. Three days after seeing Zidane, Giresse, Lizarazu, Gourcuff or Pauleta don the navy and white jersey, they will find, against Pau, the Vipotnik, Weissbeck, Livolant, Ekomié or Marcelin who are vegetating in the second part of the Ligue 2 ranking , for the last day of the championship.

So, seeing all these legends again, Tuesday evening during a match, won (5-3) against the Variétés Club de France, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Parc Lescure, was an enchanted parenthesis during these years of suffering, where the club keeps falling. “It’s so good to come back to this stadium which has brought us so much joy, memories and happiness,” commented Bixente Lizarazu. Finding all these generations of former players, it was a very nice evening. »

Decisive Giresse at 70

The scapular team lined up from the start looked very good with the Giresse-Gourcuff-Zidane trio to liven up the game and feed Pauleta, Cavenaghi and Dugarry up front. “This environment is beautiful to see,” Lizarazu smiled. Well launched by a double from Pauleta, and his celebration as in his heyday by imitating the eagle of the Azores, the public of Chaban, its name since 2001, appreciated this return of football in this historic den.

Alain Giresse, 71 years old, the “Little Prince of Lescure”, emblematic captain, who played the most matches and scored the most goals in this stadium, lasted forty minutes before leaving to a standing ovation, just like Zidane four minutes later after proving that the years have no influence on his unique technique, which Lescure had the chance to admire for four seasons.

“This club deserves to be at the top of the bill”

As a symbol, the third Bordeaux goal was the work of Diego Rolan, who had scored the club’s last goal with the scapular in this stadium against Nantes on May 9, 2015, before Ludovic Obraniak worsened the score for the Girondins with a silky lob.

“We have the impression that our club is slowly dying, and there, this evening, these are perhaps the embers which will one day cause the club to start again,” reacted Marc Planus, historic defender of the club , on France 3 Aquitaine. A full stadium, to come and see fifty-year-olds play… This club deserves to be at the top of the bill. When I see the stadium full this evening, I tell myself that all is not lost thanks to these people. I hope that one day the tide will turn and that there will be people with a bit of heart who will take over this club. »
