My Paris

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

Bordeaux were founded in 1881, and as such are one of the Ligue 1 Conforama’s oldest clubs. Prior to Frédéric Longuépée taking over the chairmanship on December 2018, FCGB had been run by the emblematic Jean-Louis Triaud for 21 years.

Bordeaux are one of France’s most successful teams, having been crowned national champions six times, and having brandished the Coupe de France four times and the Coupe de la Ligue three times. Their European record is also commendable: they reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League in 2010 and the final of the UEFA Cup in 1996, losing to Lyon and Bayern Munich respectively.

In the summer of 1992, France legend Zinédine Zidane joined the club, which was coached by the wily Rolland Courbis at the time – it was in Gironde that, alongside other future FIFA World Cup-winners like Christophe Dugarry and Bixente Lizarazu, Zidane would reveal the full extent of his talent, and pick up the now famous nickname “Zizou” along the way.

The Garonne derby pits Bordeaux against Toulouse, in a rivalry that has often given rise to memorable matches. For example, on 2 December 2007 at Stade Chalban-Delmas, the derby finished 4-3 in Bordeaux’s favour, with Pierre Ducasse scoring the winning goal in the 87th minute. The team has been coached since September 5th, 2018, by Brazilian technician Ricardo Gomes, a former Paris Saint-Germain player between 1991 and 1995, before becoming coach of the Parisians from 1996 to 1998.

Did you know?

To mark their supporters’ group’s 30 years of existence, Bordeaux created a special anniversary logo, which appeared on their jerseys when they played Guingamp on 19 February 2017. Via this tribute, they wished to thank the fans for their support, recognising that they have also been an integral part of the club’s history since the very beginning. In 2013, Bordeaux set a unique record in the Coupe de France, becoming the only club to date to win the competition while playing all of their matches away from home.

Player to watch

Younousse Sankharé

Midfielder

A graduate of Paris Saint-Germain’s youth system, Younousse Sankharé, then aged just 18, made his Ligue 1 Conforama debut for PSG on 6 October 2007 against Rennes.
A consistent midfielder, Sankharé is a Senegal international who also played for France at U-21 level. He has two cup-winners medals in his display cabinet, from a Coupe de la Ligue success with Paris Saint-Germain in 2008 and a surprise Coupe de France triumph with Guingamp in 2014.
This will be the Sarcelles native’s third season with Bordeaux; his seven goals and one assist last year saw him finish as the team’s second-top goalscorer, behind Brazilian winger Malcom.
