UNFP 2022 Trophies – The nominees for the title of best player (Messi absent), coach, hope or goalkeeper of L1

UNFP 2022 Trophies - The nominees for the title of best player (Messi absent), coach, hope or goalkeeper of L1

Only heavy for the UNFP 2022 trophies but no sevenfold Ballon d’Or. While the award ceremony will take place on Sunday May 15, the day after the 37th day of Ligue 1, all the nominees are now known. For the title of the best player and coach of L1, who will succeed Kylian Mbappé and Christophe Galtier? The Parisian striker is named and will have the opportunity to make the pass of three. He will be opposed to Martin Terrier, Lucas Paqueta, Dimitri Payet and Wissam Ben Yedder. Thunderbolt on paper but not surprising in practice: Lionel Messi is absent from this list.

Messi-CR7, who is the most deadlocked for the coming season?

Among the coaches, the Nice technician is appointed alongside Bruno Génésio, Antoine Kombouaré, Jorge Sampaoli and Julien Stéphan. Mauricio Pochettino, champion of France with PSG this season, is absent, while Paris has rarely convinced in the game. For the prize for the best French player abroad, five names are in the running: Karim Benzema, Ousmane Dembélé, Théo Hernandez, N’Golo Kanté and Mike Maignan. Karim Benzema, author of 42 goals with Real Madrid this season and winner of the prize in 2021, is the favorite, perhaps waiting for the ultimate reward with the Ballon d’Or. Note however the absence of Christopher Nkunku, author of an XXL season with Leipzig.

There are also good people for the title of best hope of Ligue 1: Nuno Mendes, William Saliba, Arnaud Kalimuendo, Castello Lukeba and Khephren Thuram. Last year, the now French international Aurélien Tchouaméni was elected. Among women, who will succeed Kadidiatou Diani? The Parisian is also named this season in the same way as Grace Geyoro, Marie-Antoinette Katoto, Catarina Macario and Clara Matéo.

Navas titled in 2021 and absent in 2022

Elected best goalkeeper in Ligue 1 last season, Keylor Navas, who played this season in goal for PSG with Gianluigi Donnarumma, is not one of the nominees in 2022. On the other hand, the Italian is in the list alongside Walter Benitez, Alban Lafont, Pau Lopez and Matz Sels. And this despite a psychological collapse and flagrant dumplings in recent weeks.

“There is a real risk that Navas and Donnarumma will still be there next season”

On the Ligue 2 side, the title of best player will be decided between Gaëtan Charbonnier, Rhys Healey, Gauthier Hein, Youssouf M’Changama and Branco van den Boomen. For the title of best goalkeeper, we find Vincent Demarconnay, Yahia Fofana, Donovan Léon, Benjamin Leroy and Maxime Dupé. For the coaches, who will succeed Pascal Gastien, the Clermont technician promoted in 2021? Omar Daf, Thierry Laurey, Philippe Montanier, Olivier Pantaloni and Didier Tholot have been named.
