Exclusive – Lille’s Farewell Debuchy Video Tribute

8 years ago

As one of Lille’s (LOSC) favourite sons, Mathieu Debuchy’s departure has prompted LOSC to put up a video salute to their departing star.

The video is well worth a watch, a bit cheesy in places but some quality match footage as well, even featuring our new man scoring from corners!

Unsurprisingly the video has French commentary but thanks to our resident translator Pierre there are some edited highlights of the commentary below, in the order that they appear;

“A dog, a real dog leaves us after 19 years at the club….. to join his accomplice Yohan Cabaye” (MD is nicknamed ‘The Dog’ due to his combative nature on the pitch).

“MD is a 100% Lillois (equivalent to us as Geordie)”.

“A real dog”!


“A fighter”!

…and “loyal”!

“LOSC pays homage with a video to thank him for his services and to wish him the very best of luck in the next stage of his career”.

“He will remain in the hearts of both LOSC and fans and the video is dedicated to him”.

I doubt Newcastle United will be releasing a video tribute to Demba Ba but watch and enjoy this tribute to our new recruit.

Debuchy, merci by LOSCTV
