Auxerre youth academy has a huge tradition of nurturing big talents in world football. One of the best examples include Eric Cantona, Laurent Blanc, Philippe Mexes, Basile Boli and Djibril Cissé, among others. Samed Kilic is another player who can join the list of legends. He made his official debut for the first-team during the current season on 15 August 2014 in Ligue 2 fixture against US Orléans. Samed holds both Turkish and Dutch citizenship and is still eligible to represent either team internationally. However, he rejected the proposal from Turkish Football Federation and decided to play for France. He represented “Les Bleus” national youth football team on U-16, U-17, U-18 and currently is a part of U-19 level.
“My idol is Ilkay Gundogan – we play almost in the same position, central midfield.”
