Unsurprisingly, the best of the season trophy was awarded by Didier Deschamps to Kylian Mbappé, author of 28 goals and 5 assists in Ligue 1. The Paris Saint-Germain striker was in competition with his teammate Lionel Messi , Seko Fofana, Loïs Openda and Jonathan David for this trophy. Franck Haise was elected coach of the season and Brice Samba, best goalkeeper. Two choices which do not suffer from any challenge in view of the season achieved by RC Lens.

The choice to designate Nuno Mendes best hope has, meanwhile, raised a few more questions. Indeed, the Portuguese only played 18 games as a starter and even if these performances were generally interesting, he was not really above the lot with his 2 goals and 6 assists in the league. On his social networks, Rémy Cabella has also expressed his incomprehension. The Lille player would have found it more logical for Elye Wahi to receive this award.

“You have Elye Wahi who is having an incredible season”

So the majority of Ligue 1 players voted Nuno Mendes best prospect… of course he’s a phenomenon and he has incredible potentialrecognizes all the same the midfielder of LOSC. But ’18 games as a starter’ this season in Ligue 1, while you have Elye Wahi who is having an incredible season with 17 goals“, commented in particular on the attacking midfielder.

Difficult, indeed, to prove Cabella wrong on this one. Besides the two players, Rayan Cherki, Bradley Barcola and Eliesse Ben Seghir were also nominated in this category. Apart from the collective record, there did not seem to be a huge gap between Mendes and the other players on the list.
