Fabien Barthez admits his dream to see Luzenac play in Ligue 2 has died, with the minnows now set to end up in French football's seventh tier.
Minnows Luzenac can see light at the end of the tunnel in their fight to join Ligue 2 after the French Football League agreed to re-examine their case.
Luzenac are to ask a court to suspend the Ligue 2 season as they continue their fight to be admitted to French football's second tier.
The French Football League (LFP) has voted not to validate Luzenac's promotion to Ligue 2 this season because the village club's stadium does not conform to safety standards.
Luzenac continue to find themselves in limbo as they fight for their right to play in Ligue 2 this season.
French minnows Luzenac have won court backing in their bid to play in Ligue 2 this season, but will still not kick off the second-tier campaign on Friday.
