Paris Saint-Germain reclaimed the French title from AS Monaco, and as a consequence, as many as seven players from their squad were named in the league's official Team of the Season.

Dani Alves, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva were the PSG stars nominated in defence, while midfielder Marco Verratti and forward trio Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar were selected as well.

In addition to the seven PSG players, Olympique Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who also won the Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Season award, and midfielder Luis Gustavo were also picked, while Ferland Mendy and Nabil Fekir were chosen from Olympique Lyon.

Despite being set to leave PSG at the end of the campaign, Unai Emery was voted the Coach of the Season, while Mbappe won his second successive Ligue 1 Young Player of the Season award.

World-record signing Neymar was named the official 2017/18 Ligue1 Player of the Season despite missing the last two months of football due to injury.

Neymar doesn't deserve it. It looks like it's all about fame now not about performance. I say again, Neymar does not deserve it
