Former team-mates at Lille, Mathieu Debuchy and Matthieu Chalmé were reunited at Le Haillan this morning after the press conference.
No longer a Girondins player but still a popular figure at the club, it was only natural that Matthieu Chalmé should be at Le Haillan this morning to welcome Mathieu Debuchy to Bordeaux. The two became friends during the three seasons they spent together at LOSC.
The former Bordeaux right-back had only good things to say about his successor, both as a player and a person. Matthieu Chalmé is a great example of the club spirit which defines the Girondins de Bordeaux, and the ideal welcoming party for our latest recruit.
