Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wins 2024 Marc-Vivien Foe Award

Olympique Marseille forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been awarded the 2024 Marc-Vivien Foé Award for the Best African player in France.

The Prix Marc-Vivien Foé is an award given to the best player who represents an African national football team in Ligue 1 and is a prestigious honor for African players.

The Gabonese attacker has received praise as the best African player in the French league, with 16 goals scored and 8 assists in 32 league games

Aubameyang was chosen over PSG defender Hakimi Achraf and Lille’s Algerian International Nabil Bentaleb.

Aubameyang had a significant lead in the voting with 252 points, followed by Achraf Hakimi with 136 points, and Nabil Bentaleb with 112 points.

This is Aubameyang’s second time winning the Prix Foé Award after winning his first one in 2013.

Previously, only the Ivorian Gervinho (2010 and 2011) had accomplished this feat since the trophy’s inception.

Aubameyang has been recently added back to Gabon’s Senior National team after missing out during the Afcon and will be playing in the upcoming Fifa World Cup qualifiers against Ivory Coast and Gambia.
