Le50 2017 – Jean-Kévin Augustin

Augustin PSG

Jean-Kevin Augustin is a versatile and powerful attacking forward who can also be utilised out wide. What is also apparent fairly quickly is the slight edge to his game – that combination of confidence and swagger with almost a nastiness that all successful strikers need. Just ask Under-20s Italian goalkeeper Andrea Zaccagno, whom Augustin stared down (it has to be […]

Malcom GDB

It’s been a while since Bordeaux have had much to shout about, but they now boast a highly talented crop of young players, led by Malcom, who has enjoyed a productive season at the Matmut Atlantique. Having joined last winter from Corinthians, the young Brazilian winger has developed into an interesting player with great qualities. Malcom has developed as a […]

Le50 2017 – Vincent Koziello

Koziello OGCN

The baby-faced Nice midfielder enjoyed a stellar 2015/16 campaign at the heart of a Nice side which earned a Europa League spot. While Nice went one step better this year, the same can’t be said for Vincent Koziello’s own progression. Despite being held in high esteem by Nice, and Lucien Favre who counted on the performances of the 22-year-old during […]

Le50 2017 – Maxime López

Lopez OM

No-one really expected a young homegrown player to flourish at Marseille this season. Not least Maxime Lopez, the creative 19-year-old midfielder. At the start of 2016/17, OM were on their knees, without financial support or direction, and had seen another young hope, Bilal Boutobba, decide to jump ship for Sevilla. Then, when the saving grace arrived in the form of […]

Le50 2017 – Wylan Cyprien

Cyprien OGCN

Wylan Cyprien is a name that is gaining some serious traction across France. The 22-year-old midfielder gained rave reviews as unfancied Nice upset the pundits’ predictions with an unlikely title push, before finishing in a highly respectable third place and with it a potentially lucrative place in the UEFA Champions League. In 2016, Cyprien had enjoyed a sterling season with […]

Le50 2017 – Enzo Crivelli

Crivelli SCB

Bastia finished the season bottom of the league, and joint-lowest scorers with only 29 goals – but they had on-loan striker Enzo Crivelli to thank for ten of them. Having scored six in his first full season for Bordeaux, this was a significant improvement in rather difficult circumstances. Nobody else on the Bastia roster came close – Gael Danic was […]

Le50 2017 – Ronaël Pierre-Gabriel

Gabriel ASSE

It’s fair to say that Saint-Etienne’s last home game of the season could have gone rather better as a send-off to Christophe Galtier after eight years at the helm, as they conceded five to an on-fire PSG. Galtier’s last roll of the dice, 4-0 down after 80 minutes, was a characteristic like-for-like change of his right-back, removing the frazzled Kevin […]

Le50 2017 – Jonathan Ikoné

Ikone MHSC

For a club where great things are expected, there are a lot of headaches. One of them is how to balance bringing younger players into the squad with the need to play the strongest possible team to keep both fans and players happy. While waltzing to last season’s title, there was the chance for PSG to offer playing time to […]
