This is an important page that will turn. Mathieu Acébès (36 years old) announced this Tuesday on France Bleu Occitanie that he will leave Perpignan at the end of this season. Captain, winger or center with an explosive character, the native of Bayonne arrived in 2016 and won the Pro D2 championship twice and experienced two climbs to the Top 14.

“I’m 36 years old and I’m coming to the end of my contract, I think we need to know when to stop. I think I still have it in my legs, but I feel that it is time for me to stop because I no longer feel very good in this professional environment and how it works. I have eaten well during all these years, I have enjoyed experiencing superb encounters,” reacted the person concerned at the microphone of France Bleu Occitanie. The former player from Biarritz, Bayonne, Auch and Pau, however, suggested that he is not going to stop his career and already has some contacts in Pro D2.
