The best Ligue 1 rookie is from Marseille

This Monday, Mattรฉo Guendouzi was voted best rookie of the season in Ligue 1 by the fans.

Despite his XXL transfer window last summer, he is not a player of the Paris Saint Germain who won the symbolic title of best rookie of the season in Ligue 1. It must be said that the arrivals with great fanfare of Lionel Messi, Georgino Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos or Gianluigi Donnarumma were mostly disappointing as they did not have the expected impact, and only Ashraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes managed to shine in their new colors.

On a smaller scale, theOlympic Marseille had also stimulated the transfer market with loans with an option to buy (Guendouzi, Paul Lopez, under) or bets like Luan Peres and Gerson. A successful bet since with a team made up largely of new players, the Phocaeans climbed to second place in the standings and obtained their ticket for the next Champions League.

Guendouzi seduced them all

This Monday, Ligue 1 revealed the name of the best rookie of the season in Ligue 1, defined by a vote in which 16,978 people took part, and it is Matteo Guendouzi who took the bet. Arrived fromArsenal who had already loaned him to Hertha Berlin, the former Lorient man won the hearts of Marseille supporters with his immense activity on the pitch but also with his fighting spirit and his leadership despite his young age and his status as a newcomer. Although mainly dedicated to defensive tasks, he also knew how to be decisive with 6 goals scored and 11 assists delivered all competitions combined.

Performances that allowed him to discover the France team where he was called by Didier Deschamps during the last three meetings. He is now competing for a place in the list that will go to Qatar next November for the 2022 World Cup.
