Despite the football season ending prematurely in France due to the coronavirus, the 2019/20 Ligue 1 African Player of the Season has now been announced.
The accolade, which is known as the Prix Marc-Vivien Foe it was named after the late Cameroon international who collapsed on the pitch during the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup, is handed out annually to the best African player in Ligue 1.
This time around, LOSC Lille and Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen won the prize following his stellar debut campaign in France.
The 21-year-old joined the French outfit in August 2019 from Belgian club RSC Charleroi as the Mastiffs sought to replace Nicolas Pepe's goals and pace up front after the Ivory coast international joined Arsenal for a fee of £72 million (R1.52 billion).
Beating the likes of fellow countryman Moses Simon of Nantes, and Mbaye Niang, Hamari Traore and Edouard Mendy who all feature for Rennes, to the award, the lanky player has attracted attention from some of Europe's biggest clubs.
Before the campaign was forced to end, the young forward helped his club finish in fourth place, just outside the UEFA Champions League places, by scoring 18 goals and registering six assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.
