Franck Queudrue was a player who never gave up on the pitch, and the former RC Lens full-back hasn’t forgotten how to deliver the tackles, even years after his career ended. In the Paroles d’ex column in L’Equipe, Queudrue takes aim at igue 1. To put this into context, Lens was already condemned to relegation, while Nancy was still under threat. ASNL were in 17th place at the start of the season, just one point ahead of Monaco, the first relegation zone. In the end, the club from Lorraine came through without a hitch, thanks to a 4-0 win that saw them overtake Montpellier, Caen, Metz and Nice to finish in 13th place. Just as Monaco lost to Lyon (0-2), Nancy (whose coach Bölöni was between 1994 and 2000) would have stayed up even with a defeat to Lens.
