Michalak - There's 'a little less space for the artists such as myself'
“It’s a tough decision, not easy to take, so I’m savouring every last moment,”
“The dream would be to go a little further,” said Michalak of his fifth-placed side who can go into the playoffs if they finish in the top six.
“It’s a wise decision. I could have done another year but it’s too physically demanding. You see some great athletes out there, and maybe that leaves a little less space for the artists such as myself,” said the relatively slightly-built Michalak.
“I’ve always played to win and we want to win [the Top 14] with Lyon, I feel calm and determined,” said the man with three French and six European titles.
“I’m quite relieved to have come to the end,” he admitted.
Michalak played 77 times for France, with whom he won four Six Nations titles including three Grand Slams.
Michalak also spent three seasons playing Super Rugby with the Sharks.
