Le50 2017 – Mariusz Stepinski

Stepinski FCN

After two goals in his first five starts for his new club, Polish attacker Mariusz Stepinski made a very bright start to his first season in France – all the more impressive given the struggles FC Nantes were going through in the first part of the campaign. Stepinski had demonstrated his natural striker’s instinct and shown himself to be technically […]

Le50 2017 – Thomas Lemar

Lemar ASM

Thomas Lemar may go down as one of the unluckiest youngsters to have emerged in France over recent times. Were it not for the explosive arrivals of Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe, Lemar would have almost certainly been awarded back-to-back Ligue 1 Best Young Player of the Season awards. Unfortunately for the Monaco wideman, he’ll have to settle for being […]

Le50 2017 – Presnel Kimpembe

Kimpembe PSG

Despite PSG’s focus on big name players and multi-million Euro deals, they are still capable of producing some great young talent. Whilst many don’t get the opportunities they deserve before eventually being shipped on without troubling the first team, centre back Presnel Kimpembe looks to be one the Parisians are rightfully keen to retain. Born in a small town an […]

Le50 2017 – Allan Saint-Maximin

Saint Maximin SCB

Monaco and exciting young players seem to have gone hand in hand in recent seasons. Whilst the likes of Thomas Lemar, Benjamin Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko and a certain Kylian Mbappe have taken the plaudits, there’s a new wave of players who are either coming through the youth system or returning from loan spells. Allan Saint-Maximin is one such player who […]

Le50 2017 – Joris Gnagnon

Gnagnon SRFC

A year on from the emergence of Ousmane Dembele, Rennes are once again in possession of a young player with huge potential. Step forward 20-year-old centre back Joris Gnagnon. His growth over such a brief period of time has been nothing more than sensational and less than a year after establishing himself as a first team player, the fact that […]

Le50 2017 – Ludovic Blas

Blas EAG

A player of great potential but perhaps yet to fully hit that mark on a regular basis would be a pretty fair one-line summary of Guingamp wide man Ludovic Blas. The player came into the last campaign with expectations set quite high after shining in the victorious French under-19 side at 2016’s European Championships. A season later and Blas will […]

Le50 2017 – Ramy Bensebaini

Bensebaini SRFC

Like every good defensive pairing, a complement of styles always works best. For Rennes, to play alongside the powerful and intense Joris Gnagnon, there is the slightly more elegant, laid-back style of Ramy Bensebaini. Whilst the 22-year-old Algerian hasn’t quite hit the levels of his young partner in crime, that shouldn’t detract from what has still been a very good […]
