Terem Moffi, the OGC Nice forward, has been named in the final shortlist for the African Best Player in Ligue 1 award. Moffi is the first Nigerian football player to be shortlisted for this prestigious award since Victor Osimhen won it in the 2019/20 season. The 23-year-old was initially named in a nine-man shortlist for the award but has made it to the final three nominees.
Moffi has been in spectacular form this season, scoring 17 goals in 31 league appearances. His impressive performances have caught the attention of football fans and pundits alike. He has been instrumental in helping OGC Nice secure a mid-table finish in Ligue 1 this season.
The two other players nominated for the award are Cote d’l voire’s Sekou Fofana and Chancel Mbemba of Congo Democratic Republic. The winner of the award will be announced at a ceremony in Paris on May 23rd.
Moffi’s inclusion in the final shortlist is a testament to his hard work and dedication. He has been a standout performer in Ligue 1 this season and his performances have not gone unnoticed. If he wins the award, he will become the second Nigerian to do so in two years, which is a remarkable achievement.
In conclusion, Terem Moffi’s inclusion in the final shortlist for the African Best Player in Ligue 1 is well deserved. He has been a consistent performer for OGC Nice this season and has proven himself to be one of the best players in the league. We wish him all the best and hope that he can continue to shine on the football pitch.
