Super Eagles forwards, Victor Osimhen and Moses Simon, are in line to be voted Lille and Nantes’ player of the season after their impressive performances for the Canary and Les Dogues respectively.

 

Fans of both clubs have been urged to vote for their best player of the season among the pool of the registered players but the Nigerians have an advantage over their teammates after their fine displays for their French sides. With seven goals ahead of second-best goal scorer for Lille in the 2019/20 season, Victor Osimhen is a front runner for the club’s Player of The Season. Osimhen joined the French side from Belgian side Sporting Charleroi in the summer and became an instant sensation at the club finishing the season as the team’s top scorer with 15 goals, seven goals more that Loic Remy who netted eight times for the side.

 

The 21-year-old’s performance for the club has seen him establish himself as Eagles No. 1 striker and has also seen him on the transfer radar of some of the top clubs in Europe including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur.Osimhen who was voted Lille’s Player of The Month twice in August and September 2019 will face stiff competition for the award from Renato Sanches, and Benjamin André, who were also twice voted Player of The Month. However, for Nantes, Simon will be one of the fan favourites for the award. The Nigerian joined the French side on loan from Spanish La Liga side, Levante in the summer, scoring five goals while providing five assists for the team in the French Ligue 1 before the season was cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. The 24-year-old is Nantes joint top scorer in the league alongside Ludovic Blas who is also on nine goals but the Nigerian edged his teammate on the number of assists, five.

 

Simon is ninth on the list of players with the most assist in the league. He scored a total of nine goals while providing eight assists for the club in 30 appearances.

This will be the first time this year that the United Kingdom government will be allowing fans into the stadium since March due to the serious disturbance of deadly COVID-19. Coronavirus disturbed virtually all sporting activities in England and the rest of the world as the Premier League games was also stopped for three months. And since the return of football in England and other parts of the world, the English government are still locking all stadiums so as to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Anthony Joshua will be putting his heavyweight titles on the line against Kubrat Pulev in a duel that will come up on December 12.

According to the report on Daily Mail, PDC chairman Barry Hearn explained that he is waiting for more information from the UK government. ‘We are geared up for fans to come back. If they give me 1,000 I will be over the moon but we waiting on more information from the government and health authorities. ‘We have got the AJ fight coming up as well without a ticketing agency, but believe you me we are standing by and waiting to press a big red button on my desk.” Anthony Joshua’s last professional fight was against Andy Ruiz and the 31-year-old did well to beat the Mexican and collected his titles back
