How Did French Custodian Fabien Barthez Become An Icon

Many think that goalkeepers are still underestimated in football. Many young performers want to become famous by being great forwards or midfielders. At the same time, there are much fewer people who want to reach heights by defending the goal like Fabien Barthez. Despite this fact, 1xBet – best Kenya betting sites offers customers to bet on more than 300 leagues. Each team of these championships has a few goalkeepers, this clearly shows that despite the lack of popularity, the goalkeeping school is still developing. Moreover, new football stars appear regularly.

One of these players was Fabien Barthez. Aged 19, he joined the main team of Toulouse, where he played his first two seasons of adult-level football. Interestingly, despite being quite young for his position, he immediately became the first-choice GK. As a result, he was promoted almost immediately and managed to play for local Marseille and Monaco. Besides, most of the time he played for the team from this dwarf state, which was represented in Ligue 1. Indeed, no one will object that one of the best betting sites in Kenya is 1xBet, but at that time, bettors from the state didn’t have an opportunity to make bets through online resources.

His only spell abroad was a three-year-long stay at Old Trafford between 2000 and 2003. The Frenchman became a favorite of the Red Devils faithful  almost immediately and was rightfully considered a key figure on the field, having played over 92 games in total. 1xBet website – live betting Kenya would have been perfect for games involving Barthez in his playing days since during a game it could be assumed that he would keep his gates locked. After the expiration of his contract with the Red Devils in 2004 he spent two seasons at his native Marseille, and the last season he played at Nantes.

Barthez’s international career deserves special attention. In total, he played 87 matches for France, in which he conceded 49 goals. Even now, after he has finished his career, in Kenya it is possible to do live betting via 1xBet website on the French national team’s games.

What did the Frenchman win in his career

In total, Fabien Barthez spent only 17 years at the professional level, which is a rather short period for a high-level goalkeeper. Despite this fact, these years can be considered successful. On some games with his participation, you could bet on https://www.1xbet.co.ke/line/, which was a great opportunity for the fans. As a result, the Frenchman:

  • won the Champions League, the UEFA Cup and the INTERTOTO Cup with Marseille;
  • won Ligue 1 twice with Monaco;
  • won the Premier League twice with Manchester United;
  • became the World and European champion with the French national team.

It was an excellent career, considering that he was the main goalkeeper in all these clubs. It is a stable team with star goalkeepers that you should bet on via 1xBet. Otherwise, there is a risk of losing your funds.
