The renowned Moroccan midfielder Sofiane Boufal has been known and named as the best player in France Ligue 1.
It is said that the Algerian and Lyon clubs, player Rachid Ghezzel and Senegal and Angers player Cheikh N’Doye would win the trophy of Marc-Vivien. The annual award was inspired by the Cameroon international who lost his life at the age of 28 in 2003. The Moroccan footballer Boufal has succeeded Andre Ayew, the winner of last year who brilliantly played in Marseille before he joined Swansea. Well, he is the third one in Morocco to have won the prize, and this means a positive closure to his season after the final league games against Saint-Etienne and Guingamp.
Boufal has proven to be quite influential for the Football club Lille in this season as he scored 11 goals and helped his team to be 6th in the league. This French midfielder has contributed in mostly half of the goal in 29 appearances in the northern club in the league of this season. Sofiane Boufal made his first entry in the international level for Morocco in Africa Cup of Nations and Cape Verde in the month of March after which his future was pledged to North Africa. The midfielder has provided assistance in the reverse fixture as Cape Verde was defeated by Morocco on 29th of March to make their place strong in the upcoming tournament which will be held in 2017.
