Aiglon of the month

Guessand kicks off the year!

Evann Guessand is your Aiglon of the Month for January, taking home 24% of the votes. The forward led Le Gym's line during the first month of the year, and you did not hesitate to reward him for his performances.

The most recent example illustrates everything: what he can bring, what he can work on, and what he can aim for. Against Metz, Guessand worked tirelessly and never faltered. For a large part of the match he battled for the breakthrough without success. He fought hard and, eventually, won a penalty fifteen minutes before the end of the game, which he skilfully slotted home from the spot.

At 22 years old, wearing the number 29, and with almost a decade spent at the club, he is making progress. He is getting stronger and tougher. The proof is in a stat: he started in 5 of the last 6 games for Les Aiglons (he came on as a substitute against Auxerre in the Round of 32 of the Coupe de France) and found the back of the net twice in January: against Bordeaux and against Metz. This brings his total to 4 goals this season (after Lorient and Marseille), and 5 in 50 professional matches for the club.

In this first month of 2024, you have picked out the work of the Academy, as Tom Louchet comes in second place. Often praised by Francesco Farioli, Louchet started in both Coupe de France matches, standing out as a wing-back and winger against Auxerre, and as a midfielder against Bordeaux (and Rennes in Ligue 1). Finally, Marcin Bułka completes the podium. The Polish giant helped Le Gym win the penalty shootout against Auxerre and, against Metz, secured his 12th clean sheet in 19 matches.
