Died this Monday after 39 years in a coma, the former French international defender Jean-Pierre Adams had a unique career, marked in particular by this “black guard” formed with Marius Trésor in selection. Born March 10, 1948 in Dakar, Senegal, Jean-Pierre Adams spent most of his childhood in France, his adopted country. It was with the Bagneaux-Fontainebleau-Nemours agreement (1967-1970) that the central defender (second from the right, in the bottom row) stood out, becoming vice-champion of France amateur in 1968 and 1969 (he had not yet achieved this same honorary title in 1967). It (far right) then joins Kader Firoud’s Nîmes (1970-1973) in D1. With, at the end of the day, a fourth place in 1971 and a second place in 1972 (and a Coupe des Alpes that year, beating Alain Giresse’s Girondins de Bordeaux 7-2 in the final).

In club, the rest of his career was written in Nice (here in the UEFA Cup against Espanyol Barcelona), between 1973 and 1977. Then at PSG, from 1977 to 1979. Before the final freelance in Mulhouse and Chalon. On March 17, 1982, after an anesthesia error during a knee operation, he was plunged into a coma. For a little over thirty-nine years, then.
