Ulrich Ramé (born 19 September 1972) is a French retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

In a professional career which spanned two decades, he played mainly for Bordeaux (14 seasons), appearing in more than 500 official games and winning six major titles.

A French international during four years, Ramé represented the nation at Euro 2000.

Club career[edit]

Born in Nantes, Ramé started playing professionally with SCO Angers, making his Ligue 1 debuts in the 1993–94 season but being immediately relegated. Two years later the Maine-et-Loire dropped down another division, but the player returned to the top flight the following season, joining FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

After 23 matches in his first season, helping his team finish fifth, and reach the domestic League Cup final the following year, Ramé became Bordeaux's undisputed first-choice, going on to appear in nearly 500 official matches, with the team winning two national championships – separated by ten years – and three more league cups.

In the 2009–10 season, after Cédric Carrasso's signing, 37-year-old Ramé became the backup. In the 2011 summer, after 520 official games played with the Girondins, he returned to Ligue 2 and joined CS Sedan Ardennes.[1]

International career[edit]

Ramé made his debut for France on 9 June 1999, in a UEFA Euro 2000 qualifying 1–0 win in Andorra. He was subsequently picked for the final stages' squad, with the national team winning the tournament; after Bernard Lama's international retirement, he became second-choice.

Ramé played in three matches at the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup, with France again emerging victorious. Again as a backup, he represented the nation in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, also in South Korea; after making a blunder against Czech Republic on 12 February 2003 however, he fell out of favor with manager Raymond Domenech, and was not recalled again.
