Former Girondins goalkeeper, Cédric Carrasso took part in the gala match in honor of the centenary of the Stade Chaban-Delmas. His physical condition surprised many Internet users, but the former OM player often had to battle with his weight during his career.

There were beautiful images Tuesday evening during the gala match in Bordeaux for the anniversary of the Stade Chaban-Delmas, between the arabesques of Zinedine Zidane and the goals of the eternal Pedro Miguel Pauleta. After this evening, some Internet users were also surprised by the physical condition of Cédric Carrasso, the former Girondins goalkeeper, who has gained several kilos since the end of his career.

Cédric Carrasso’s weight problems are not a discovery. As a young goalkeeper, he weighed more than 100 kilos before being injured during a gala match between OM, his training club, and France 98. After this incident, he very quickly lost more than 20 kilos to reach a weight which allowed him to take off his career. Promoted to Marseille in 2006-2007, after the departure of Fabien Barthez, he was for a long time one of the best goalkeepers in Ligue 1, notably during his time at Bordeaux (2009-2017). He has been selected for the French team, against Poland in a friendly in 2011, and numerous call-ups for the Blues.

“I forced myself not to eat”

In 2016, after a serious knee injury, Carrasso explained in L’Equipe all the efforts he had to make to stay “fit”. “Ever since I was little, I’ve always had to watch my weight, he confided. During injuries, we know that it is something problematic. But I always came back from my injuries sharper than ever. But there are times… I don’t wish anyone to do what I do. At the end of rehabilitation, for ten days, when I was able to do it, in addition to the sessions, I went running in the morning and evening while having, besides that, a minimal diet. Although I was super trained, after four kilometers I could no longer walk. I almost fell, I was on my knees. I was forcing myself not to eat, I was hurting myself. I eat a fairly balanced diet but I have a tendency to eat when I’m anxious… There, it was two grated carrots with nothing and a soy pancake. I was hurting, but I needed this. I suffered from it. I need to go to the end of myself so as not to suffer and to be well. »

Cédric Carrasso, now 42 years old, ended his career in 2018 after a final stint in Turkey, with Galatasaray. He has nearly 500 professional matches. His career can be held as an example for all young players forced to deal with weight problems.
