Sylvain Legwinski

Where is Sylvain Legwinski now?

A cult hero at Fulham, Sylvain Legwinski retired from playing professional football in 2008 after two seasons playing in the Championship with Ipswich Town.

An unconventional player who was a hard-working, ball-playing midfielder, Legwinski (nicknamed Monica), was a mainstay in the Fulham team from 2001 to 2006.

Over his 17 year career, he played in over 400 first-team appearances for just four teams winning the French Ligue 1 with Bordeaux and Monaco and the UEFA Intertoto Cup with Fulham.

During his time at Ipswich Town, Legwinski started working towards obtaining his coaching badges and in 2009 he moved to non-league side St Neots Town in a player/assistant manager role.

His time at St Neots was brief and he made a move back to London in 2010 to work as a coach at Crystal Palace before moving to former club AS Monaco as assistant coach to first-team manager Laurent Banide.

He then spent time working as manager of the AS Monaco under-19’s side before his appointment in his current role as assistant coach of the club’s reserve side.

Legwinski also occasionally appears as a pundit on French sports channel SFR Sport.
