Handball. Michael Guigou, game expert, bows out at forty

"Mika" is a great player. "He is the greatest left winger of all time and will be an indelible mark, especially since he could play in the center half," says Jerome Fernandez, former Blues captain.

Guigou is very discreet when he is not in court. He spent most of his career living in Montpellier (1999-1999). Guigou has a distinctive style, an attachment to the game, and a keen taste for winning. With a staggering track record.

Michael's ability to grasp the game and provide the right answers using his technique was what set him apart from everyone else. We relied on his talents when there weren't any other solutions. It is a quality that transcends time so he began his career very young and ended it late. "Patrice Canayer, judge coach and manager at Montpellier, has been leading the organization since 1994.

The MHB prodigy won twice the Champions League at the end his career. He did it in 2003 against Pamplona and again in 2018, against Nantes. After a Final 4 in Köln, he defeated the Vardar Skopje in semis and Nantes in final after eliminating Barcelona, Flensburg, and Flensburg.

Guigou, who has been part in all campaigns and all of the victories since 2002 with the Blues. The winger left, a triple Olympic champion in Beijing, London, and Tokyo in 2008 and 2012 respectively, has more than a thousand goals to go with the Hold of the Experts (2006 - 2017) on the planet handball, alongside his ever faithful accomplice Luc Abalo.

Guigou arrived in Montpellier in 1999. Guigou was originally from Apt (Vaucluse). He refused offers from any of the largest Spanish or German clubs such as Kiel or Barcelona to maintain a balanced life.

"When Niko (Karabatic), left for Kiel (in 2005 editor's note), I was asked if he wanted me to follow him. There were also contacts made with Ciudad Real and Barcelona. My goal has not been to be the greatest player in the world or to be in top leagues. The life you live is not limited to a sport career. He said that if you can find a way to balance your happiness and the happiness of others, it's great.

Elegance on parquet floors is not a problem. Guigou, who was a witness in the civil case that saw 12 Montpellier players convicted of betting, was never under suspicion.

Guigou surfed in the Roaring Twenties at Montpellier for over fifteen years. He also worked tirelessly to improve the club's image. In 2018, Guigou won the second European title as a symbol his loyalty and consistency.

"It is rare to stay more than 15 years in a club. Mika is Montpellier and Montpellier is Mika," sums up Vincent Gerard, an international goalkeeper who won the C1 in 2018.

He resigned from Patrice Canayer's team after he opposed a 2019 contract extension.

"I don't fear the aftermath, but it will make me sad. It will be difficult for players to see the end of their careers.

The left winger was originally projected at the Blues following Montpellier's first European title. He has always been a key player in France's history.

"The 2009 World Cup in Croatia, and the London Olympics 2012 were my highlights. He also remembered the first European title in 2006. ...",, and ended his blue epic with an Olympic title. At the end of the Olympic Games, he made his fifth appearance.
