This photo, from the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, is all the proof you need of that. His turn in fortunes was shown in a 2—2 draw with Derby County at Pride Park. Derby forward Malcolm Christie looked to have sealed his hat-trick , but referee Steve Dunn controversially disallowed the goal, ruling that kicked the ball out of Barthez's hands. The first time this occurred was in November when Leicester City came to Old Trafford.
As Muzzy Izzet prepared to take a penalty, Barthez stood aside from the goal, with his hands behind him on the post. Izzet went the same way, but Barthez denied him with a fine save to his right. This time he was booked for his antics by referee Mike Dean , and so he then he took his place between the posts and made it work again by saving Steed Malbranque 's spot kick. The season was a mixed bag for Barthez. One highlight was a fabulous save to deny Dietmar Hamann 's yard rocket at Anfield against Liverpool , as United held on to win 2—1.
In other games, he let goals go past him that shouldn't have. Barthez was also widely criticized in United's exit to Real Madrid in the Champions League, especially for Ronaldo 's opener which beat him at the near post. Barthez was dropped for the final three games of the season, with Roy Carroll taking his place. Return to Marseille[ edit ] In October , after American newcomer Tim Howard won the starting goalkeeper's job from Barthez, United agreed to release Barthez from his contract at Old Trafford after the —04 season, and also agreed to loan Barthez out to Marseille for the remainder of that season.
FIFA , however, blocked the loan deal on the grounds that it was not agreed upon within the international transfer window. The two clubs agreed on a loan deal after the transfer window reopened on 1 January , and Barthez joined Marseille soon afterwards. On 27 April, Marseille and Barthez agreed to a two-and-a-half-year contract which would keep him at the club until spring Barthez was involved in a controversy during a friendly match between Marseille and Morocco 's Wydad Casablanca on 12 February Barthez was reported for spitting on the Moroccan referee.
On 21 April, Barthez was summoned to a hearing before the disciplinary committee of the French Football Federation FFF ; the following day, he received a six-month suspension, with the last three months being suspended. In an unusual move, the federal council of the FFF appealed the suspension, arguing that the punishment should have been for a minimum of six full months. Eventually, his suspension was extended to six full months due to political pressures.
Retirement[ edit ] On 8 August , Barthez announced he was still hoping to play professional football for another two years, insisting he was also looking to continue his career in the French international setup. His ideal scenario would have been a return to first club Toulouse, where he could be close enough to allow him to take care of his sick mother. But he said if he did not have a club by 31 August he would not carry on with football.
On 5 October , it was confirmed that he had retired from football, having failed to agree a return to Toulouse.
