“I’m 42 years old so some time must stop. We must say stop and above all must give way to young,” he said on beIN Sports, quoted by L’Equipe.

He was a member of France’s Euro 2000 winning squad, and also collected Confederations Cup winning medals in 2001 and 2003. His first senior silverware was the Coupe de la Ligue with Metz in 1996.
