An exciting Ligue 1 season came to an end with a bit of an anti-climax. After Lyon & Marseille both held their own as potential challengers to Paris Saint-Germain’s domination in France, the capital club showed their experience and retained their title, now making it three successive championship wins having gone 18 years without one.
For manager Laurent Blanc, it was a fantastic response to all his critics, with an impressive showing in Europe as well and also the possibility of winning a domestic treble, something never done in France earlier. But he isn’t the only one to have impressed both domestically and in Europe, with a few others deserving as much credit as French domestic football begins to set itself up on the footballing map.
And as has been a bit of customary sight in France, the youth coming through from each of the clubs stand out above the rest among their European counter-parts. It has been another season where French clubs have had huge dependence on the youngsters in the side, right from those battling for the title, and those fighting relegation. With so much talent in the league, it’s no surprise that many of our Talent Radar stars dominate the positional awards.
And so, below we have seven award categories for you, the Outside of the Boot readers to vote on. We trust you to put biases aside and allow the enthusiast in you to vote based on pure footballing terms.
