Former France international Johan Micoud has revealed he wanted to end his career with Bordeaux.
The 34-year-old, who counts Parma and Espanyol amongst his previous clubs, made a return to his former team last summer from Werder Bremen with the intention of closing his career with Les Girondins.
"Finishing my career here was my aim when I moved last summer," Micoud told the club's website.
"I still hope to play in the Champions League next season, it is mathematically possible.
"There are five points between second-placed Lens and us. We have played one less match than them and we will welcome them at the Stade Chaban-Delmas. We will do everything to finish in the top two.
"I have felt better since January. I have settled down with my family. Until that moment, we were living at a hotel so that wasn't easy.
"I needed time to adapt to the system but I think that I have played well in the last two or three matches."
