This Saturday, players and supporters from Toulouse and Le Havre paid tribute to former goalkeeper Christophe Revault, who died Thursday at the age of 49.
It was important for them to find each other. A few hours before the kick-off of the match between Toulouse and Caen, counting for the 37th day of Ligue 2, Toulouse supporters gathered to pay tribute to their former goalkeeper, Christophe Revault, who died suddenly at the age of 49 years. After a moment of meditation in silence, they escorted the bus of Patrice Garande’s players, singing songs, behind a banner “Christophe, forever in our goals”.
The tributes multiplied this Saturday in Ligue 2. At the Stadium, a wreath of flowers was placed on the lawn and a time of meditation was respected, in the presence in particular of Damien Comolli, president of Téfécé, and former teammates of Christophe Revault. During the meeting, the players wore a black armband. The emotion was also present in Valenciennes, for the trip to Le Havre.
The beautiful tribute of Romain Basque
A banner “For Christophe, for the club, win !!!” was deployed in the stands and Le Havre midfielder Romain Basque celebrated his first goal by brandishing a flocked “Revault” jersey. Trained and revealed in Le Havre, Christophe Revault joined PSG in 1997, before moving to Rennes and Toulouse. In 2007, he returned to HAC and helped the team back up to Ligue 1.
He hung up his gloves in 2010, at age 38 and after more than 450 professional games. He then remained in the organizational chart of the club. According to Le Parisien, the Le Havre prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation to determine the causes of the death of the ex-porter, found dead Thursday at his home.
