French Star Bravo to Retire

Published July 5th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Former French international Daniel Bravo is to retire after a glittering career that saw him play for Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and Parma as well as two stints with current club second division side Nice, club boss Frederico Pastorello announced Wednesday.  

The 37-year-old, who picked up 13 caps, also won the French title with PSG in 1994, three French Cups (Monaco 1985, PSG 1993, 1995), the Cup Winners Cup in 1996 with PSG and the League Cup also with PSG in 1995. 

Bravo began his career as an attacking midfielder and carried the nickname of the "little prince", but as age set in he adapted his game to more of a defensive role. 

"I regret his decision not to continue but it is without doubt the end of a great career," said Pastorello – (AFP)
