Pioneer and visionary. French and European. Instrumental in creating both the ECL and the Ballon D'Or.

France Football 12th February 2019 has six pages + an editorial in tribute.

The writing I remember most is in France Football just after the ECL Final of 2005 (UEFA invited him to the 50th Final). If anyone has a PDF or a link of that I would like to read it again.

Video tribute (in French)

And a small correction - he was 98.
