The veteran goalkeeper has made the record books following Wednesday's encounter against Ajaccio

Mickael Landreau has expressed his pride at breaking the Ligue 1 appearance record by making his 603rd outing in France's top flight.

The Bastia goalkeeper, 34, reached the milestone in his side's 1-1 Corsican derby clash at Ajaccio on Wednesday.

Landreau was unable to share his achievement - which surpasses that of former Monaco goalkeeper Jean-Luc Ettori - with any fans as the match was played behind closed doors at a neutral venue, but says he was still delighted with the milestone.

"It is fabulous to experience this and to be able to share it," said Landreau.

"The game was played behind closed doors, but I prepare for every match in the same manner.

"I can feel what this represents and it is massive."

Landreau started his professional career at Nantes and played for Paris Saint-Germain and Lille before arriving at Bastia. He has also made 11 appearances for France.
