19 years after leaving AJ Auxerre, Djibril Cissé is back at the club as forwards coach.

Djibril Cissé is back at Auxerre, but not as a player. The man who scored 90 goals for AJA has just been appointed assistant coach at the Burgundy club, in charge of the forwards. " The Ligue 1's top scorer in 2002 and 2004 will work closely with Christophe Pélissier and his technical staff on a weekly basis," wrote Auxerre, relegated to Ligue 2.

Djibril Cissé, now 41, will begin his training to become a coach, and will also give advice to the forwards of Auxerre's first team, as well as its reserves.
