Auxerre majority shareholder dies the morning before the Coupe de France final

Auxerre played PSG last night at the Stade de France in the 2015 Coupe de France final, and put on a valiant show, falling only to an Edinson Cavani header as the Ligue 1 champions completed an historic domestic quadruple. 

Unfortunately one man who never got to see his Ligue 2 side’s fantastic effort was majority shareholder Emmanuel Limido. 

Mr Limido tragically passed away the morning before the final after losing a battle with heart disease. The 56 year old had been at the head of the club since 2013, and this unexpected death has rocked Auxerre.
