Debut: Hibernian (2) vs Falkirk (1) - Scottish League - 20/02/1999
Appearances: 90
Goals: 16


Franck joined Hibs in 1998 from Montpellier. After several successful seasons as a player he went on to replace Alex McLeish as manager.

His playing career started with Sochaux in 1983, thereafter he had two spells with Olympique de Marseille, and it was during his second spell with them he went on to win the Champions League in 1993. This victory however was later overshadowed by the corruption scandal which rocked European Club football.

Franck Sauzee 2

Franck won a First Division Championship medal for Hibs in 1999, but he is perhaps most fondly remembered for his goal against Hearts at Tynecastle in the 3-0 Millennium derby match. After scoring he ran the full length of the pitch to celebrate with the Hibs fans at the opposite end of the stadium. He also famously lost a tooth after scoring with a header again against Hearts this time at Easter Road.
