Christophe, the current Pélissier / Ligue 1 / J13 / Auxerre-Ajaccio / SOFOOT.com
In great difficulty, the AJA is counting on Christophe Pélissier to restart the car. And everything suggests that the 57-year-old technician is armed for this mission.
“For fifteen years, wherever I go, the goals have been achieved. So I don’t want to wait. ” Two months after being relieved of his duties in Lorient after a rise then two consecutive maintenance in the elite, Christophe Pélissier presents his CV in the columns of The group. “I am lucky to be a consultant, which allows me to watch matches. I am ready to take on a new challenge, to sign for a Ligue 1 project, as I have done for four seasons. ” So he won’t have dragged along. New coach of Auxerre since midweek, Pélissier has left the Prime Video sets for the Abbé-Deschamps bench, with the ambition to keep the AJA, currently 18 years oldAnd of Ligue 1. A task he has always managed to accomplish with his former teams.

Amiens 2018. Amiens 2019. Lorient 2021. Lorient 2022. After sending these two clubs to Ligue 1, the 57-year-old French manager has systematically managed to keep them in the top flight. Military events that necessarily prompted the owner James Zhou and his general manager Baptiste Malherbe to focus on Pélissier. “His recruitment is obvious. He has already fulfilled what is asked of him elsewhere with a method, a job, valuesassured the French leader with the newspaper Republican Yonne. It fits this challenge well. You have to take responsibility, find solutions, be brave, determined. It corresponds in all respects to what we need today. ” At the end of his first training with the AJA this Wednesday, the native of Revel, in the Haute-Garonne, has assured that he has a number of remedies in his bag. “With my staff, we are also fortunate to know Ligue 1 well and to have had four maintenances there while we were set up. We know what it takes to perform, Pélissier explained, taking the time to reveal his maintenance method. Everything is based on the values of respect, rigor and ambition, but also pleasure. Also, a team that has achievements is a team that has an identity with the soul of a warrior. It takes character and we know that determination can make up for some things. ”

I’m not sure, however, that the will is enough to get the head out of the water of a team that hasn’t won since 27 August. The AJA remains on a dismal eight-match winless streak (six losses and two draws). The setback against Clermont (2-1) on 9 October was therefore too much for Jean-Marc Furlan, dismissed from his post ten days after his gesture of humor and a finger of honor towards the supporters of Clermont. To achieve the club’s goal, Auxerre management left their new manager the freedom to change all the staff of his predecessor. This new adventure will therefore take place without the garments that created Furlan’s AJA, in existence since 2019. “Michel Padovani, Emmanuel Pascal, Attila Farkas and Robert Duverne leave the staff and they all understoodsaid Baptiste Malherbe, grateful for the work done over the past three years. Given what to do, we are forced to implement a new method. ”
To be even more precise, only the physical trainer Loïc Damas, the video analyst Ming Zhi and the team manager Christophe Grosso does not move. A drastic change for AJA players. And to put all the cards on his side, Pelissier surrounded himself with those who have always accompanied him on his missions: his assistant Jean-Marie Stephanopoli, the goalkeeper coach Olivier Lagarde, and finally the video analyst Olivier Renard, all passed on the bench of Amiens and Lorient. “It is important to have a staff that I know well, but who know me well. They are experts in their field, and after that, you have to handle all of that. There were already many competent people, and therefore some remained on the staff. There is no former staff and a Pélissier staff, there is an AJA staff. ” This Sunday at Abbé-Deschamps against Ajaccio, Icaunaise’s team definitively turn a page to move on to the next with the hope of writing the rest of history in the elite.
