Between 1999 and 2003, Mexico legend Rafael Marquez turned out for AS Monaco in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, winning the league title and the Coupe de la Ligue before moving on to an ultra-successful stint with Barcelona. But what does he remember from his time in France's top flight? Read on...

BEST GOAL "When I scored in Monaco against Paris Saint-Germain!"

BEST MEMORY "Naturally, it was when I won the title in my very first year with Monaco! We'd started partying before we were crowned Champions!" WORST MEMORY "Probably my last year with Monaco... We were so close to winning the title again. We missed out by three points!" BEST TEAM-MATE "I played with some incredible players, but the Latino clan stands out! [Marcelo] Gallardo, [David] Trezeguet, [Pablo] Contreras and Costinha too! We had some great times together!"

TOUGHEST OPPONENT "Back then it was Auxerre. I didn't like playing them! They had great players, tricky youngsters who made their mark. They were a real rival of ours!" BEST ATMOSPHERE "Playing in Marseille, the atmosphere was incredible! Of course it wasn't Le Classique but the rivalry with Monaco was still quite big! I loved playing there!"
