[edit] Football Manager 2010

Coupet is a great goalkeeper but has one major problem and that is his age. He might have an other year or two, but you will need to look for cover quickly. His strengths are his handling and his aerial ability. His determination could be a match winning attribute. His weaknesses are his age, which leads too a low fitness. He should stay number one in your squad for the beginning of the game.
