“There is a strong chance that this will be my last year,” Boudjellal told AFP after the game with Clermont.

“I do not have a huge fortune but it’s reasonable. I am much depleted by the club and I don’t know if many presidents do this.

“And after a while it weighs on my life. There are lots of things that make me wonder why I take hits every week from guys who have not done a hundredth of what I’ve done for 10 years.

“It will be complicated for me to continue longer. I want to live another life.”
