You could call Gilles Veissiere an almost great referee. Many Champions League matches (6 in 2001-2002), matches in European Championships 2000 and 2004 and two matches in the 2002 World Cup. Till 2005, when he had to retire because of his age, he was there, but almost always in the group stage, never in the final.

Nice
Veissiere, who did reach the semi-final of the Champions League in 2003, was elected council man for sports in his home town Nice in 2008.
