The Frenchman managed to feature 144 times, via Transfermarkt, for the Magpies from 2001-2005, scoring 31 times and providing ten assists and it seems that 15 years later he still loves the club from the North as he still wears club kit from when he played for them.
He also appeared eleven times for the club in the Champions League and was playing for the club when they were competing at the top of the league instead of the bottom.
The former World Cup winner seems to still have a love for the game, as he kicking a football around at the age of 44 in his spare time.
The left winger also played for French giants Paris Saint Germain, managing an impressive 34 goals in 82 appearances, via Transfermarkt.
