Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon, has been named player of the 2019/20 season by his French club, Nantes.
The French Ligue 1 club made this known in a recent tweet.
Simon joined Nantes on a season-long loan from La Liga club, Levante, last summer, and helped them to 13th position on the French Ligue table, before the season was abruptly called off due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Simon scored nine goals across all competitions, including five Ligue 1 goals, and registered eight assists – the highest in the club.
In a poll conducted by the club’s fans on the official website, the Nigerian forward, who recently welcomed a baby with his wife, won 40 percent of the total 3,500 votes recorded to win the prestigious award.
“With nine goals and eight assists in 30 games played, all competitions combined, Moses Simon left a lasting impression.
He is voted “Canary of the 2019-2020 season by Iliane” by you, supporters of the Yellow and Green,” the club announced.
