FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin, 2022-23, Ligue 2
League Position - 1st: Past Positions
After relegation from Ligue 1 the aim was to bounce back. With a team of players where the majority were either good, or too good for the division, it wasn't that difficult at all. Razvan Ionica had an incredible goal scoring record, and was very key in our title victory. I didn't bring many players in, because I only wanted to bring players in that were better than what we had, and since we were in Ligue 2, nobody really wanted to come to us. Jerome Hebert had another good season on the right, scoring 10 goals. Chakib Saber, another striker, scored 23 and assited 12, which is a very good record for a second striker. Causse and Marbus had another glorious season together in the centre of midfield.
Onze de départ
GK: Matthieu Dreyer, 34, Français - The long term Goalkeeper had a good season, conceding 40 in 43 games. It's probably time to cash in on him and sign a better, younger replacement though, and I'll do that next season.
DR: Edgardo Flores, 28, Honduras - With the Bulgarian Tsvetkov sold somebody else had to play at DR, Flores, who primarily played in the centre of midfield last season was the man who stepped up.
DL: Kevin Gomis, 34, Senegalese - Another player who has been at the club for a while, Gomis played at DL mainly because I couldn't bring anyone that good in. He definitely wont be my first choice left back next season.
DC: Mournir El Mrini, 25, Morrocco - The Morroccan that was signed last season was chosen as first choice center back this season. He did an alright job.
DC: Mickael Nelsen, 33, Francais - Another player who was only really first choice because I couldn't bring anyone that much better in.
MR: Jérôme Hebert, 21, Français - The home grown hero continued his goal scoring form by netting a tidy 10 goals, as well as assisting 7. It's worth noting Hebert now as 10 goals in 22 games for France U21 team.
ML: Gianmarco Gigli, 26, Italien - The Italian left midfielder had a pretty good season on the left flank, helping the team with a nifty 16 assists.
MC: Sergio Marbus, 30, Néerlandais - The 30 year old Dutch captain recaptured his great form of the past, scoring 6 and assisting 14.
MC: Matthieu Causse, 26, Français - The Frenchman had another good season in the middle of midfield, scoring 10 and assiting 11.
ST: Chakib Saber, 26, Morroccan - The Morroccan was the second best striker at the club, btu that's not to say his tally of 23 goals and 12 assists wasn't impressive.
ST: Razvan Ionica, 25, Roumain - 41 games, 40 goals, 14 assists, 13 MOTM's. Enough said.
