Remember Robb Heineman telling Wizards fans that the Wizards had signed 2 new players. Today thanks to Thad at The Back Post, we've publicly learned the name of one of those players, Stephane Auvray. I'd been hearing that we'd signed Auvray, but had been unable to find an official source for the signing. Auvray is the Wizards new defensive midfielder. He's been spending the most of his career in the French second division.
He's definitely not a goal scorer, having only scored 3 career goals, but from highlights I've seen of his online, his play in the midfield will be a big plus for the Wizards. He'll bring back a little bit of the destroyer to the position that the Wizards have been lacking in the middle of the field. And with the small field at CAB, having a guy that can dominate the middle of the field is a major plus. I need to see him in person to know for sure, but from what I've seen of him, I definitely like this pick up.
Check out the video of some of his play.
