Fabien Barthez started his professional football at Toulouse, and now he went back to assist their goalkeepers as a consultant for the rest of the season.

Barthez

made his professional debut in 1991 and now he will work with

Toulouse

goalkeeper mentor Patrice Garande and caretaker manager Denis Zanko for the Ligue 2 club.

In the wake of leaving Toulouse the next year, Barthez proceeded to win the Champions League with

Marseille

, and two Premier League trophies with

Manchester United

after winning the

1998 World Cup

and

Euro 2000

with Les Bleus. 

"My pure passion has pushed me to invest myself in a consultancy role. I wish to convey and share my vision of this position in its entirety, in collaboration with the technical staff, for the goalkeepers of the first team and the academy," Barthez said in a statement.

"I would like to thank president [Damien] Comolli, the management team as well as Patrice Garande, Rudy Riou, and Denis Zanko for their trust and their welcome."

Toulouse was downgraded to Ligue 2 after the first-class league was shortened last April, now they're in ninth place of the table with 15 points out of 10 games.
