At the microphone of RMC, Maxime Médard reacted to the victory of Stade Toulousain against La Rochelle on Saturday in the Champions Cup final. The French international salutes the work of the entire club, eleven years after the fourth and previous coronation.
His final almost came to an end in the 27th minute, when Levani Botia dangerously tackled him to the point of receiving a red card. But once the concussion protocol was completed, Maxime Médard was able to return to the pitch until the final whistle sealed Saturday the 22-17 victory of Stade Toulousain over La Rochelle in the final of the Champions Cup. “It’s huge for the club,” said the 34-year-old French international at RMC’s microphone.
“It was tense the whole game, he also said. La Rochelle had a huge game. They played 60 minutes at 14, they did what they could. Today, it smiled on us. “We were patient, we scored the points when we needed to. The team has experience, it’s a generation in place that will perhaps win several titles.”
“It is magic”
With this fifth coronation, Toulouse becomes the most successful club in the competition. Maxime Médard was present during the coronations of 2005 and 2010, which followed those of 1996 and 2003. “It’s magic, commented the person concerned. Individually, I was not necessarily in the group, I came back, I worked, made the round back “.
Collectively (…), this rewards the tremendous work of leaders, stewards, families and supporters. It is a particular club, “he added, before confirming to conclude that La Rochelle would” without doubt “end up pocketing a title” quickly “.
