Ten years after, Sylvain Wiltord’s return in his first professional team was one of the “feel good stories” of the 2007 summer. A prodigal son of the Stade Rennais, “Nino” has experienced everything, from his beginnings in Division 2, all the way up to a European Championship title and a World Cup final with France. After long negotiations with Lyon, the 92-caps man came back to his initial red and black colours, to help Rennes become one of the strongest places in the French football landscape. Unfortunately, the beautiful story went sour after Guy Lacombe’s arrival. Often pushed out of the professional squad, Wiltord eventually decided to leave again in winter 2009, and joined Marseille on a 6 month deal. In 2009-2010, he signed a contract for Ligue 2 side Metz, where he still plays at the moment.
