1986

A young Laurent Blanc begun his career at Montpellier and his early days saw him play in an attacking midfield position. His most rewarding season came in 1986-87 when he scored a remarkable 18 league goals which were vital to Montpellier winning promotion to Ligue 1.

Montpellier was where Blanc would spend the most time at any club in his career, ending with 243 league appearances, and a record 76 goals despite cementing a centre-back role.

1995

During the mid-1990s, imposing centre-back Laurent Blanc played for several clubs, but it was a relatively short spell at Auxerre where he arguably enjoyed his greatest success.

His performances at the back – particularly in the later stages of the season – led Auxerre to a domestic double as they lifted both the league and cup, the first and only Ligue One title for AJA. His reputation increased greatly and Spanish giants Barcelona soon came calling.

1998

In 1998 Blanc was arguably at the peak of his career and saw him go down in history at the 1998 FIFA World Cup™ held in his native France. Not only did his performances in defence lead France to conceding just 2 goals throughout the tournament, Le Président was the first player ever to score a ‘golden goal’ in a World Cup when he netted the winner against Paraguay.

The tournament ended in great success for Les Bleus, winning the cup in front of their home fans.
