They were many, from Michel Platini to Alain Giresse or even former Lyon glories, on Sunday at Groupama Stadium before the match between Olympique Lyonnais and Stade Rennais F.C. to honor the former goal scorer and Olympic leader Bernard Lacombe, who retires at the end of the year.

To begin with, at the Lyon Olympic Museum, President Jean-Michel Aulas, after returning to the club in 1988, announced the legend of the Olympics when he ended his career in Bordeaux, that Bernard Lacombe (67) became honorary chairman of the management committee, citing " a good man because he leaves a lasting mark ".

For his part, Bernard Lacombe remembered that he had it " lived by his passion " and that the Olympics stayed " his heart club forever ".

" I would love to play at this magnificent stadium with Fleury Di Nallo and Serge Chiesa ", two former Lyon glories who together with Lacombe are the club's top three scorers. " We would have spent good evenings ", he later entrusted himself to the microphone at the edge of the lawn later in the afternoon before beginning with a round of applause in front of the still sparse racks.

In this enclosure of the Olympic Park, the players of the current team entered the warm-up field with a shirt flowing with the name Lacombe and number 9 that he wore as a player.

And finally, Bernard Lacombe gave the fictitious kick-off meeting after the meeting after running into an honor bar formed by his prestigious guests and by players from Lyon and Rennes.
