Osimhen wins Ligue 1 Player of the Month award

Lille striker Victor Osimhen has emerged the French Ligue 1 player for the month for September.

Osimhen beat Monaco’s Islam Slimani to claim the monthly award.

The Nigerian international got 45% of the votes cast to top the chart ahead of Slimani (37%) and Nantes’ Nicolas Pallois (18%).

While Slimani has scored four goals in six appearances for Monaco, Pallois, a defender with Nantes, played a key role in the club’s surge to the second position in the table.

“His outstanding form and your votes combined to make @victorosimhen9 the @Ligue1_ENG Player of the Month for September. Take a bow everyone !,” tweeted Lille.

Osimhen has scored eight goals in 11 appearances since his debut for Lille in August.
