Gérard Guillochon and Jean-Claude Dinet at kick-off

Gérard Guillochon and Jean-Claude Dinet gave the honorary kick-off for the Ligue 1 Round 33 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Toulouse FC (1-3) at the Parc des Princes on Sunday 12 May.

Gérard, who has been the club since it was founded in 1970 - i.e. for 54 years! - and Jean-Claude, who has been with the club for 47 years, have worked with the club's various youth teams and then with the first team as volunteer managers and stewards. After being warmly greeted by Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, who took the opportunity to present them with a shirt, the two men proceeded through the guard of honour formed by the players as they entered the pitch.

Guillochon's son Yannick, who was born in Saint-Germain-en-Laye and graduated from the club's youth academy, played 77 matches and scored two goals for the first team between 1982 and 1985, winning the Coupe de France in 1983. He then played for Le Havre AC between 1985 and 1988 and Stade Rennais FC between 1988 and 1991, before ending his career at AS Poissy, not far from the... Campus PSG.

Affectionately known as the 'Tontons' by the players, they provide support and experience on a daily basis in the training centre and in preparing for matches.
