By losing heavily (4-1) this Sunday on the lawn of Angers in Ligue 1, the Girondins de Bordeaux have undoubtedly said goodbye to their dream of maintenance. A cataclysm for this historic French football club.
Monument in danger alert! The Girondins de Bordeaux are indeed on the verge of relegation after yet another slap received in Ligue 1 against Angers this Sunday. David Guion’s men, last in the championship at only 27 points, could be condemned in the event of success for AS Saint-Etienne on Wednesday against Nice. While waiting to learn more about their fate, the Bordelais are at work preparing for the last two league games against Lorient and Brest because there is a slim hope of finishing the play-off. Suddenly, the situation makes people unhappy, like Grégory Coupet, goalkeeper coach in Bordeaux.
A Hero Match without Coupet or Juninho
The catastrophic situation in which my club finds itself will unfortunately not allow me to come and celebrate the anniversary of the first title with OL, to my great regret. Nevertheless, I wish you all to experience a great moment of sharing and conviviality 🙏

Grégory Coupet was to take part this Tuesday at Groupama Stadium in a Heroes’ Match organized by Unicef and OL Fondation. An event to be held on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of OL’s first French championship title. Legend of the Rhone club and having won the club’s seven Ligue 1 titles, Coupet was one of the headliners of this somewhat special and oh so symbolic meeting for Les Gones. But given the situation in Bordeaux, the former porter of the Blues must decline his presence at the Heroes’ Match, as he himself indicated on Twitter this Monday at the start of the day: ” The catastrophic situation in which my club finds itself will ultimately not allow me to come and celebrate the anniversary of the first title with OL, to my great regret. Nevertheless, I wish you all to experience a great moment of sharing and conviviality. » To note that Grégory Coupet will not be the only major absentee on the side of Lyon legends, since Juninho will not be there.
