Football: Zidane, Giresse, Pauleta...The Bordeaux legends celebrated the 100th anniversary of Parc Lescure

Zidane, Giresse, Lizarazu, Pauleta, Gourcuff, the legends of the Girondins were all present to celebrate the hundred years of Parc Lescure which they once again lit up, Tuesday during a gala match won against the Variétés Club of France (5-3). “It’s so good to come back to this stadium which has brought us so much joy, memories and happiness,” commented Bixente Lizarazu. Finding all these generations of former players, it was a very nice evening.”

It is rare to celebrate a stadium but Lescure, in Art Deco style with avant-garde architecture, without supporting pillars, deserved this evening in front of 28,000 supporters, weaned from results in recent seasons, and who were able to bathe in the space 90 minutes of communion and joy, in a serene nostalgia. The scapular team lined up from the start looked very good with the Giresse-Gourcuff-Zidane trio to liven up the game and feed Pauleta, Cavenaghi and Dugarry up front. “This environment is beautiful to see,” Lizarazu smiled.

Opposite, the Variétés did not differ with four world champions, Laurent Blanc, Christian Karembeu, Robert Pirès and Fabien Barthez without gloves or the perfect gestures of the attacker that he has become.

Well launched by a double from Pauleta, and his celebration as in his heyday by imitating the bird of the Azores, the public of Chaban, its name since 2001, appreciated this return of football in this historic den which hosted two World Cups. world of football and which has been a highlight of the Union Bordeaux-Bègles rugby players for nine years.

Alain Giresse, 71 years old, the Little Prince of Lescure, emblematic captain, who played the most matches and scored the most goals in this stadium, lasted forty minutes before leaving to a standing ovation, just like Zidane for four minutes later after proving that the years have no influence on his unique technique, which Lescure had the chance to admire for four seasons. The Variétés, tinged with old Marseillais, which revived some ancestral songs of the Virage Sud, reduced the mark to the half hour by Mamadou Niang.

As a symbol, the third Bordeaux goal was the work of Diego Rolan, who had scored the club's last goal on the shoulder in this stadium against Nantes on May 9, 2015, before Ludovic Obraniak worsened the score for the Girondins with a silky lob.

It was another Giresse, Thibault, the son, born in Gironde without ever having worn the navy and white colors, who reduced the score for the first time. Shortly after, Steve Savidan brought the Variétés to a goal but the last word came from Laurent Ferrères, ex-UBB rugby player who now shines in this historic temple of French sport.
