WT Franco has put an end to speculation that he might leave Auxerre following a dramatic escape from relegation by signing a new 3 year deal with l’AJA.
Franco has been linked in recent weeks with moves to Boca Juniors in Argentina, Spartak Moscow in Russia, Standard Liège in Belgium, Borussia Mönchengladbach in Germany and perhaps most strongly with Besiktas in Turkey, but with each club opting for other more experienced managers, Franco’s committed himself to the Burgundy club along with his new assistant for club and country David Bechkoura.
Franco’s earned himself a reputation as something of a Journeyman during his 7 year managerial career following stints with FC Höllviken, SC Angrense, GKS Katowice, Santos FC and the Liechtenstein National Team, none of which have lasted more than 2 years, but with this new deal Franco will now surpass that mark with Auxerre. Whether he intends to fulfil the entire 3 year duration of his new deal however remains to be seen.
With their immediate futures sorted, Franco and Bechkoura will now turn their attention to France’s European International League Semi-Final against Italy at the Stade de France on the 9th of June.
Les Bleus’ head coach intends to announce his 23 man squad this coming Thursday.
