The Moroccan footballer Yunis Abdelhamid, who plays for Reims club, has been nominated, for the second time, for the trophy of the best African footballer in the French League 1 Championship (Prix Marc-Vivien Foé 2020).

RFI and France 24 have announced the names of the 11 players who are finalists for the award that recognizes the best African footballer to have played in Ligue 1 during the 2019-2020 season. A year that ended prematurely because of the health crisis, the two French media stressed in a statement.

The name of the winner of this trophy will be revealed on 29 June, the same sources added.

The finalists were selected by a jury made up of nearly 100 journalists specializing in French and African football from all media (radio, TV, written press, Internet).

Yunis Abdelhamid had already been nominated for this award last year.

Three Moroccan players had already won this trophy. They are Sofiane Boufal in 2016, Younès Belhanda in 2012 and Marouane Chamakh in 2009.
