From 10 am, a hundred onlookers were already taking their places in front of the church. Some even brought chairs for the occasion. Many police officers surrounded the square of the church. “Ah, it’s for Nanard,” exclaimed a man passing by.

200 people in front of the church

“I came to greet the sportsman and the man who brought a lot to French football,” testified Hugues Modestin, 54, saying he took advantage of his day off. “I am from the West Indies and the fact that he gave OM a chance, to players like Jocelyn Angloma, from Guadeloupe, was important to me.”

“He is a figure in France, of business and politics,” explained Jean-Claude, a 68-year-old retiree from Val-de-Marne, “to pay him homage”. “He did some good things, others bad, we must remember the whole,” added his wife, Françoise, 77 years old.

About 200 people gathered in front of the church without counting the journalists, shortly before the start of the religious ceremony. Bernard Tapie died Sunday at the age of 78 at his Parisian home from cancer. A fiery chapel will be erected Thursday in Marseille, where he is to be buried on Friday.
