Spent at PSG for a season in 1999, Bruno Rodriguez will appear at the Parc des Princes for the classic against OM this Sunday. After amputating his right leg a few weeks ago, the former striker gave his news during an interview with the Paris club.
For several weeks, PSG and Olympique de Marseille have been in good form in Ligue 1. First and second respectively in the standings, the two rivals will face each other at the Parc des Princes this Sunday (8:45 pm). One meeting was attended by Bruno Rodriguez.
Having amputated his right leg a few weeks ago, the former PSG striker gave his news during an interview with the club, while once again thanking supporters for their support during the match against Girondins de Bordeaux. : “It’s going great. I’m recovering pretty well. Morally it’s fine. I got lots of messages of encouragement, support and it warmed my heart (…) even That there were even banners to support me at the Parc des Princes.”
A place where Rodriguez can relive some memories. Specifically for a liberation goal set against Marseille in 1999.
“I had never experienced such an atmosphere”
Even though he only lasted one season at PSG, Rodriguez was able to live out an unforgettable moment during the May 1999 classic. In the 88th minute, the striker scored the winning goal for his team (2-1). Beyond the goal, the French returned to the atmosphere of the Parc des Princes at the time: “I had never experienced such an atmosphere. I was in heaven. The park was on fire. I hold an unforgettable memory.”
But the atmosphere of 1999 is unlikely to be repeated this Sunday. Still unhappy with the early elimination in the Champions League, Collectif Ultra Paris plans to implement the following watchword: “present but silent”. If the show isn’t supposed to be in the stands, we’ll have to expect some drama on the grass field. Invited to give a prediction, Rodriguez sees the Parisians win “3-1”.
