“Christophe Revault was first and foremost a childhood friend, we did our training together, I am very moved,” continues Vikash Dhorasoo on the Chaîne l'Equipe.
I remember the preparations for matches, we always felt very precise, very tense and at the same time very focused, he was a great goalkeeper.
We called him Bioman in the locker room because he was so unbeatable and impassable.
It is for these reasons that he went to Paris-SG.
He then returned to Le Havre where he was an important player, he served the club a lot.
The supporters of the club must be very sad today.
Other former teammates, such as Jamel Aït Ben Idir in Le Havre, continued the tribute.
“The Le Havre family is losing an emblematic player.
A true friend, very sensitive and very attached to Le Havre.
Rest in peace.
Without forgetting its former clubs, which communicated very quickly.
PSG has thus expressed its "immense sadness", just like Toulouse FC, which salutes a goalkeeper who "marked the history of our club by his absolute loyalty, his irreproachable mentality and his peerless talent.
“Child of La Cavée Verte, Sky and Navy icon, it is a huge Monsieur du HAC who leaves us and leaves the club orphaned by one of its most brilliant HACMan.
All our thoughts are with his family and his two children, ”his heart club concluded on Twitter.
