A week after the Bordelais face relegation strugglers Lens, they are set to receive title challengers Olympique de Marseille to the South-West.
While one suspects that OM players will be concentrating fully on their side’s heavyweight clash with Paris Saint-Germain this weekend, ex-Bordeaux stopper Chalme is already looking ahead to Sunday 12.
“We’ve got a very, very important game coming up against Marseille,” he began, speaking to Girondins TV.
“It’s about more than just one result, it’s the last ever game at Chaban against OM, with the record that we have.
“It would be great to keep that going and leave Chaban with the record intact.”
Bordeaux’s new 43,000-seater stadium is set to open in May 2015, and will be located in the city’s Lac district. The club have been at their current ground—which was named the Stade du Parc Lescure—since 1938. They won six French championships at the stadium.
Chalme featured for the club for seven years—between 2007 and 2014—having learned his trade at LOSC Lille. The defender was a key member of Laurent Blanc’s title-winning side in 2009.
