The Frenchman has come a long way since then and celebrates his 20th anniversary in charge this weekend. So what advice would he give himself if he went back to 1996?
“I would say, ‘Don’t imagine all the suffering you will go through! Just focus on the happy moments you could live because you need to be tenacious to spend 20 years at a football club. You need to be brave as well and you need to have quite a good capacity of survival in the difficult moments’.
“The other advice I would give him would be, ‘Stick to what you believe is right and behave inside the club like it’s your own club. With every decision you make, you have to decide whether it’s a decision for the good of the club’.”
