Marius Tresor is a former professional football player from France who is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of his time. He was born on January 15, 1950, in the French West Indies. Tresor spent his entire playing career in France, playing for famous clubs like Marseille and Bordeaux.
Tresor's career began with Corsican side Ajaccio, where he played for three years. He quickly established himself as a talented defender and was soon called up to the French national team as a 21 year-old during his time there.
In 1972, Tresor moved to Marseille, where he quickly became a huge fan favourite. He was known for his elegant style of play and his ability to read the game. Tresor was a versatile player who could play as a center-back or a full-back, and he was equally comfortable on both feet. He spent eight seasons at Marseille, before moving to Bordeaux in 1980. He played for Bordeaux for four seasons before hanging up his boots in 1984.
Tresor's international career was equally impressive. He played for France in the 1978 and 1982 World Cups, with Tresor playing a crucial role in defence as his performances helped the side reach the semi-final. Tresor scored in extra-time to put France 2:1 ahead of West Germany but they would go out in the cruellest possible fashion - West Germany coming back from 3:1 down to eventually win the game in the penalty shootout.
