Since making his Ligue 1 Conforama debut for Bordeaux in 2004, Renaud Cohade has become a fixture of the top division scene. At 34, the Metz schemer reveals all he knows about Ligue 1.

Cohade ran through his career highlights, speaking to The Ligue 1 Show on beIN Sports.

BEST MOMENT

"Surviving relegation on the final day with Valenciennes by beating Nice. It was like a final, the winner was safe, so the atmosphere was incredible. Having to win on the final day that way, there was a lot of pressure on us so it was an amazing feeling at full-time, we didn't hold back on the celebrations!"

BEST GOAL



"My best goal in Ligue 1 was with Saint-Etienne, against Troyes. At half-time that day, coach Galtier had given me an earful because I'd been too often out of position. It boosted me, and I went on a nice little run in the penalty box, after a nice ball from Jonathan Brison. It was a nice goal, it's a good memory!"

BEST MATCH

"It was with Valenciennes against Paris Saint-Germain! We lost 4-3! But it was a spectacular game! Against a sta- studded PSG team, there Nene, Jeremy Ménez, some top players! I scored the third. I had one of my best games, I really enjoyed it in midfield. There were plenty of goals. Coaches don't necessarily enjoy that sort of game but as a player it was great, I've got great memories of that day!"

BEST ATMOSPHERE



"Ah! At the Geoffroy-Guichard! When we won the derby 3-0! Everyone knows how important the derby is and it had been a while that we hadn't won one at home so the crowd was really pushing us. Those really are great matches to be part of. I was lucky enough to score. We controlled the game and won by three goals so the atmosphere really was crazy!"

BEST TEAM-MATE

"The most naturally talented player I've played alongside is Aubameyang. It's easy to find a guy like him with passes because he's so quick, it makes things easy.



"In the dressing, I've made good friends in football like James Fanchone who I played with at Strasbourg. At Valenciennes, Greg Pujol, David Ducoutrieux. And at Saint-Etienne, I had good times with Fabien Lemoine, Jeremy Clement, Francois Clerc but it's not a great sign that all those guys are now retired!"
