Best Men's Player of the Year
The youthful Kylian Mbappé wins the Globe Soccer Award for Best Player of the Year, in a season in which he distinguished himself on the pitch with his team, Paris Saint Germain – winner of the French Cup – and with the French national team – winner of the Nations League. This award represents Globe Soccer’s top recognition alongside TikTok Fans’ Player of the Year.
Born in 1998, Mbappé’s victory symbolises the rise of a new generation of young champions. He was able to surpass players with much more experience in the game such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema and Mohamed Salah.
On an individual level he also succeeded in dominating this year as top scorer in Ligue 1, with 27 goals scored, and in the French Cup, with 7 goals scored.
