Best hope of L1: Nuno Mendes

The young Parisian had a lot to do with the competition of a Bradley Barcola on fire at the end of the season or a 17-goal Elye Wahi with Montpellier. But it is the Portuguese left-back who wins the prize. Rare Parisian satisfaction of the season, despite his injuries, he won 83% of the 23 Ligue 1 matches played with Paris.

Best L1 goalkeeper: Brice Samba

Unsurprisingly, it was the Lensois goalkeeper who was rewarded tonight. Great architect of the crazy performance of the Sang et Or to finish second in Ligue 1 this season, he was the author of 15 “clean sheets” and did not miss a single minute in the league. The Artésiens have the best defense in Ligue 1, there is a reason for this.

Best French playing abroad: Karim Benzema

The Real Madrid Frenchman retains his title, which he won for the fourth time. He is the most successful in this category which has existed since 2016. The 2022 Ballon d’Or was rewarded despite a slightly disappointing season for Real Madrid, stripped of the Spanish league title by Barça and humiliated in the semi-finals of Champions League by Manchester City. Benzema is currently La Liga’s second top scorer with 18 goals. He is ahead of the votes Eduardo Camavinga, Théo Hernandez, Randal Kolo Muani and Mike Maignan.

Best D1 Arkema player: Delphine Cascarino

Despite an end to the season marked by a knee injury which will deprive her of the World Cup in Australia, the OL striker won the reward after a good season crowned by a double Coupe de France – Championship with the Lyonnaises. The Fenottes prize list was completed this evening by Christiane Endler. The Lyon goalkeeper continues her supremacy over D1 Arkema with a third consecutive title of best goalkeeper. The first had been under the colors of Paris Saint-Germain. The Chilean had only conceded eight league goals last season when the trophies were presented. This time it is… nine.

Best L2 player: Georges Mikautadze

The Georgian striker has exploded in Metz this season. He is currently the league’s top scorer with 23 pawns in 32 games played, crowned with eight assists. He thus succeeds Branco van den Boomen and could further embellish his season with a climb that remains to be validated with the Garnets.

Best L2 goalkeeper: Arthur Desmas

Sixteen matches without conceding a single goal, best defense in the championship, a team at the top of Ligue 2 BKT almost all season… rewarding Arthur Desmas was logical this year.

Best L2 coach: Luka Elsner

After his first season at Le Havre, he kept his men in first place in the championship for almost the entire duration of the 2022/2023 financial year. Place that the HAC still occupies one day before the end of the championship. The rise is not yet validated for the Norman club, which will have to ensure at least a draw during the 38th day, but the work of the technician is already to be welcomed.
