The former goalkeeper of the French football team Bruno Martini, current deputy director of the Montpellier training center, died at the age of 58, announced Tuesday, October 20, the Hérault club, where he had put an end to his playing career in 1999. Martini (31 selections between 1987 and 1996) had suffered a cardiopulmonary arrest at the beginning of last week at the Grammont training center, in the near periphery of Montpellier, before being transported to the Arnaud de Villeneuve hospital in serious condition.

The former goalkeeper of the Blues, originally from Nevers, took over in the selection of Joël Bats, semi-finalist of the 1986 World Cup and European champion in 1984, before handing over to Fabien Barthez, preferred at the Parisian Bernard Lama. Before evolving at the highest level, Martini had become European Champion Espoir (1988) within a promising generation led by Eric Cantona, Laurent Blanc, Vincent Guérin …

Bruno Martini, renowned for his sobriety and discretion, was revealed at Auxerre, where he was trained, before joining Montpellier in the summer of 1995, where he ended his career four years later.

Respected character of French football

With the Burgundy team, under the authority of the emblematic Guy Roux, he played multiple epics in the UEFA Cup, with a semi-final against Dortmund (1993), and won the Coupe de France (1994) in front of his future club.

At the end of his brilliant career, Buno Martini, a respected figure in French football, joined the national technical direction, where he was responsible for more than a decade (1999-2010) of the tricolor doormen and set up the training of high level goalkeepers.

Holder of the coaching diploma, he also provided alongside Pascal Baills a short interim at the head of the Montpellier team, after the resignation of Rolland Courbis in December 2015 and before the appointment of Frédéric Hantz at the end of January 2016.
