Christophe Dugarry (born March 24, 1972 in Lormont ) is a former French football player .

In his career he was active in the professional leagues in France , Spain , Italy and England . He was also a French national player and was selected world and European champion .

Club career

Dugarry's professional career began with the French first division club Girondins Bordeaux , where he a. a. together with his future national team colleagues Zinédine Zidane and Bixente Lizarazu led the club from the second division to the final of the UEFA Cup . In the finals, however, Bordeaux had to admit defeat to Bayern Munich 1: 2 and 1: 3.

In the following season, Dugarry moved to Italy like Zidane, but not like his good friend to Juventus Turin , but to the Lombard club AC Milan . A year later, however, he left the club, this time for the Spanish top club FC Barcelona . Dugarry only stayed there for a few months, however, and he returned to his homeland.

Back in France, he first played for Olympique Marseille and later again for Girondins Bordeaux . After a game against Olympique Lyon on April 30, 1999, he tested positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone , but was acquitted of a formal defect. With Olympique Marseille he reached the 1999 UEFA Cup final against AC Parma , which the Italians won. He then hired the then French champions Bordeaux, with whom he was still able to win the French league cup in 2002.

At the beginning of 2003, Dugarry tried again abroad. This time at the English first division club Birmingham City . But here, too, his engagement was comparatively short and after a year he moved to Qatar to the Qatar Sports Club . He didn't play a game there and ended his career in 2005.

National team career

If Dugarry has only a few successes at club level, he has won all the trophies that can be won as a national player. He took part in two world and two European championships and was able to win the title once. He also won the Confederations Cup with the French national team in 2001 . He wore the "Équipe Tricolore" jersey 55 times and scored eight goals.


Media career

After his time as a professional footballer, Dugarry worked as an expert and commentator for the pay channel Canal + from 2006 to 2016 . Since 2016 he has been an expert at SFR Sport and the namesake and moderator of the radio show "Team Duga" at RMC . With other greats of French football such as Emmanuel Petit , Frank Lebœuf and Jérôme Rothen , he also became an ensemble member of the football talk show Le Vestiaire on the television channel SFR Sport .
