AJ Auxerre: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Coach: Jean-Luc Vannuchi Stadium: Stade Abbé Deschamps Last Season: 9th Ligue 2   DEFENCE Auxerre had goalkeeping issues last season. Donovan Leon didn’t perform as well as expected and he’s been given the boot. They have definitely upgraded by signing Zacharie Boucher from Toulouse, a fine young talent who is definitely worth the £350k they paid. Geoffrey Lembet is an able backup who was given plenty of starts last season and is experienced. The backline has pretty…
