BREAKING: Cavani wins French players’ player of the year

By  | 

Paris Saint-Germain’s Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani was voted French players’ player of the year on Monday with Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe winning the under-21’s title.

Cavani has flourished in the absence of departed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and has notched up 35 league goals so far since moving into the centre forward slot from the wing where he was exiled while the giant Swede was around.

Mbappe, just 18, has had a sensational break out year, especially since the winter break, while his coach at Monaco, Leonardo Jardim, won the coach’s award.
