We all exploded a little (sic) but we really enjoyed it. Then, in the middle of this crowd, there was this unusual bus parade. These are unique moments. ”
On the കിലോമle de Ré Bridge, within ten miles of the road leading to Rivedoux, there is no doubt that the former coach of Limoges recreated this last hours of film.

“Little Ardekois” passed through the limousine
“This victory in the European Cup is both a matter of pride and well-being,” he said. The club, which has been seeking the title for a long time, is very happy. Four years ago, I coached Limoges at Federal 1 and today I’m more proud of my career to find myself on the European Champion staff, little Ardekois ”.
European dedication will not detract him from this natural humility. “I did not steal anything,” he asserts. This is a very difficult job, where questioning is permanent and failures are part of success. You learn a lot about yourself and others during difficult times.
