“It would be great for our squad and the region. But we have to beat Bordeaux, who are a Champions League club."
“It won't be easy, but with the help of our fans, we can make it."
“I have never played at the Stade de France, and I have to say that it is a dream to play at the famous stadium.
“Playing the final against Le Mans, who didn't offer me a contract extension last season, would be a great personal revenge.
“I want to prove I can make the step-up to Ligue 1, after having played for Toulouse and Le Mans in the top division."
Faure openly admits that he retains an element of bitterness about his top-flight experience, which saw him fall-out with Toulouse staff before being shipped off to Le Mans, where he also did not quite make the grade.
“That is true that I have a love-hate relationship with the Ligue 1 clubs," he said.
“The problem is my bad reputation, caused by some Toulouse directors. Clubs believe I am a bad boy but that is not reality, I am a pro," he insisted.
“Reims are a good side and I am happy to be here.
“Anyway, I am lucky to be a footballer, people don't usually make a living from their passion.”
