For the fourth successive year, Outside of the Boot recognises the individuals who stood above & beyond the rest in their respective leagues. With Europe’s top five leagues the focus of our End of Season Awards, we pick out the best players across their respective positions, the best manager, the exceptional Talent Radar young player, and ofcourse the sole man standing above the rest.


The 2016-17 Ligue 1 campaign was an interesting spectacle. Unlike previous seasons, there was no domination from capital club and defending champions Paris Saint-Germain with Leandro Jardim’s young AS Monaco proving to be formidable challengers to the crown while Lucien Favre’s Nice led the title race for a number of weeks.
