AJ Auxerre

In


Théo Pellenard (def)(Valenciennes FC); Gaëtan Perrin (mid)(US Orléans)

Out


Kenji Van-Boto (sp)(def)(Pau FC, on loan); Mickael Le Bihan (k)(att)(Dijon FCO); Yanis Begraoui (sp)(att)(released); François Bellugou (sp)(def)(released); Axel Ngando (sp)(mid)(released)

The past campaign undoubtedly was the best Auxerre had in almost a decade as they ended up on the 6th place, just 2 points away from Paris FC and the promotion playoffs. While he can be happy for the results obtained, his boys were a proper scoring machine and eventually held the second-best attack of the Ligue 2 with 64 goals, coach Furlan must have felt a bitter taste in his mouth at the end of the season as Auxerre could have actually pushed for a return to the top flight. Furlan was confirmed at the helm for the third season straight and he was given the reins of a squad quite similar to the one he led last season. In fact, Auxerre were not particularly active over the summer, as they limited themselves to signing just 2 players, having equally lost 2 and released some supporting players like Begraoui or Ngando. Left-back Boto was loaned out to Pau FC, where he should be given some precious playing time, after representing merely a back-up for Bernard and enjoying very few opportunities for displaying his skills. Le Bihan, instead, was lured by Dijon FCO after scoring 19 goals in the past season, his personal record, and ending up the second-best striker of the Ligue. Newly-arrived Pellenard did not have many opportunities to shine at Valenciennes recently and he represents a like-for-like alternative for Boto at left-back. On the other hand, winger Perrin had a great season at US Orléans in the Championnat National, where he scored 13 goals and served 9 assists, and could represent a great alternative to now ageing Dugimont, who had a great past campaign. So, Auxerre are still missing a proper replacement for Le Bihan at centre-forward as the likes of Fortuné or Ben Fredj either lack the needed skills or are still too young, but they can still rely on two productive assist-men such as Sakhi and Autret.

Target


With a tighter defence and the addition of a valid striker, Auxerre could become serious contenders for a top 5 finish.

Season Review
2020/2021

№6: AJ Auxerre

Auxerre will certainly hold bitter memories of this season as they failed to reach the play-offs for promotion to Ligue 1 at the very end by only 2 points. In fact, they finished 6th but they could have gone for much more, considering all the quality they had in the squad. Having barely touched the squad over the summer, they were expected to immediately start strongly, but in the initial 7 weeks they were as inconsistent, alternating wins and defeats. Between weeks 8 and 20, though, they became unbeatable, while scoring for fun, and thus they achieved the 4th spot on the table. Back-to-back away defeats to Clermont and Troyes, the sides who eventually obtained direct promotion, made them fall back to the 5th spot and they would never make the top 4 again. Although in the following 16 games they would only lose twice more, to Rodez and Pau, two sides involved in the fight for salvation, Auxerre had already lost the brightness that had characterized their previous months for good. While they enjoyed a rather fit squad for most of the season and never really had problems offensively, Auxerre depended excessively on Le Bihan’s goals. The second-best top scorer of the Ligue 2 (19 goals) had to face a scoring drought during the second part of the season and so coach Furlan’s boys often failed to kill matches off. Auxerre failed to win between weeks 27 and 31, collecting 4 consecutive draws, and they dropped to the 6th spot. Another 3 wins between weeks 32 and 35 momentarily brought them back to the 5th but their hopes were eventually shattered. Besides Le Bihan, coach Furlan could enjoy the services of defenders like Jubal and Lloris, and a consistent right winger like Dugimont, who scored 14 goals and served 4 assists. But the two players who really stood out were Sakhi and Autret, the two masterminds of the midfield, who provided 11 goals and 24 assists altogether. Auxerre will lose Le Bihan over the summer and, if they intend to compete for promotion, they need to replace him properly.
