Mbappe shined for PSG this season and helped keep the side in the Ligue 1 title race until the final matchday of the campaign. The PSG star led the way with 27 goals in league play this season, which included multiple game-winning scores. More so, he notched a notable seven assists in league play, which ranked behind Angel Di Maria’s 10 assists for the most among PSG players this season.
This is the second time in Mbappe’s career that he has won this prestigious honor. He first claimed this award over the 2018-2019 campaign when he scored a league-high 33 goals.
Mbappe will be sure to have competition from the likes of Neymar and Marco Verratti for this award next season assuming that he goes on to stay with the French powerhouse.
