Grégory Coupet... No.1

Published on the 07 July 2006 à 11:45 by R.B

It won't make up for being overlooked as France's first-choice 'keeper at the World Cup in Germany, but after being voted Ligue 1's best 'keeper several seasons in a row, Grégory Coupet has inherited another number one record...

Frédéric Dehu (405 matches) has quit the French league for Spain's La Liga, Ziani (386 matches) has brought the curtain down on his career after playing just seven games last season and Warmuz seriously injured his knee after standing in for Monaco's Roma last season. Therefore, it's Greg with 384 L1 games under his belt who will start the 2006-07 as the leagues most experienced player. We hope he quickly breaks the 400 game mark and holds on to this new number spot for a long time to come...
