Guy Noves Toulouse boss 2012

Living legend: Guy Novès

Friday's Top 14 clash against Perpignan will see Toulouse manager Guy Novès be involved in his 1000th game for the French champions.

In what will be a significant milestone in any sport, the iconic coach will oversee his 741st game as a member of the Toulouse staff having played 259 games for the club between 1975 and 1988, winning two French championships in 1985 and 1986.

The former international wing, who won seven caps for France, has been with the same club his entire career.

The 59-year-old is the most decorated coach in Europe having won 10 French titles and four European Cups with les Rouge et Noir.

In 2011, Novès was offered the French national job but turned it down, saying he was only prepared to work with people he trusted which meant depriving Toulouse of their coaching staff, a move he was unwilling to make.
