Simon, Moffi nominated for Marc-Vivien Foe award

 Super Eagles duo, Terem Moffi and Moses Simon have been nominated for the Marc-Vivien Foe award for the best African Player in Ligue 1.

Moffi and Simon have impressed for their respective clubs this season.

Moffi scored his 50th Ligue 1 goal in OGC Nice’s 2-1 defeat to Nantes last weekend.

The 24-year-old has scored 10 goals in 23 appearances for Les Aiglons this season.

The striker was also nominated for the award last season.

Simon, who has been ruled out of the remainder of the campaign after fracturing his ankle on international duty last month, has scored three goals and provided six assists in 22 league outings.

The two players will be hoping to emulate Vincent Enyeama and Victor Osimhen, the two Nigerians, who have won the award in the past.

Nine other players are also nominated for the award.

They are Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Marseille), Algerian duo Nabil Bentaleb (Lille) and Amine Gouiri (Stade Rennes), Morocco’s PSG star Achraf Hakimi and Senegal’s Lamine Camara (Metz).

Others are last season’s winner and DR Congo’s Chancel Mbemba (Marseille), Ivory Coast’s Oumar Diakite (Reims), Moffi’s Nice teammate Burundian Youssouf Ndayishimiye and Wilfried Singo of Monaco

The winner of the award will be announced on May 13.
