Bordeaux football club have always been a formidable force within French football but it is extremely unfortunate that although the club has had some great players within its ranks over the years they have never been able to perform to their potential within Europe.

The club has so far won a total of 6 league championships. Bordeaux enjoyed its golden period during the mid 80’s when the club won 3 titles under the 1998 world cup winning manager, Aime Jacquet. The club last won the league in the 2008-2009 season when it finally ended Lyon’s seven consecutive league winning years. The club currently lies at 8th spot with 19 points behind league leaders Lille. The club’s European campaigns have been very forgettable with only a handful of noticeable performances. These include the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup and runners up medal for the 1995-96 UEFA Cup against Bayern Munich football club.

After Claude Bez invested heavily into the club, Bordeaux FC regain the lost confidence and now surely seem to be on the rise towards some well deserved success both nationally and internationally. Most of the national success for the club came under Andre Gerard who also happens to be the club’s longest serving manager.  This french football club enjoys a lot of popularity.
