Raynald Denoueix: “The worse things go, the more regrets I have”

Dismissed from FC Nantes six months after the French championship title won in May 2001, Raynald Denoueix (75 years old) bounced back with Real Sociedad the following season. There, the French coach had discovered another world, another culture, but above all obtained results: at the top of La Liga until the morning of the penultimate day, his team had been beaten in the end by two points by Real Madrid of the Galacticos (Zinédine Zidane, Luis Figo, Ronaldo). From his home in Nantes, the former trainer recounts this unique experience, which leaves him with more vivid regrets than ever and the memory of a wonderful human adventure, his last on a bench, just twenty years ago.
