There's Only One Sauzee
When Franck Sauzee signed for Hibernian Football Club in February 1999, he already enjoyed legendary status in European footballing circles. Alex McLeish's feat of persuading the Gallic Great to sign for Hibs was the club's biggest coup since the signing of George Best. Many people imagined that Franck Sauzee would be quite happy to come to Edinburgh, pick up his salary and quietly see out his distinguished career. They could not have been more wrong. Sauzee bought into the culture of Hibernian from his arrival. He proved that he was still a great footballer and helped to lead his new team from the mediocrity of the Scottish First Division back to the heights of the Scottish Premier League. Franck became club captain, inspired his team mates, scored many unforgettable goals and took Hibs to a Scottish Cup Final. Sauzee then retired to become manager of his beloved Hibees. Sadly, this chapter of Franck's Hibs career was to prove short-lived but he left the club as one of its best loved and most revered players. Even today, ten years on from the great man's departure, the song There's Only One Sauzee is still sung at Easter Road. Now, well-known Hibs author, Ted Brack, documents the highs and lows of the Sauzee era. Ted has spoken to directors, managers, players, journalists and supporters to get the full story of Le God's time at Easter Road. The result is a must read book for Hibs supporters of all ages, especially those who still treasure the memory of Franck Sauzee, Hibernian Super Star.
