Ligue 1: Lucas Paqueta voted best foreign player in the 1st round!

The day after the first round of the legislative elections, Lucas Paqueta was voted the best foreign footballer in Ligue 1 for the 2021-2022 season.

Totally forgotten by the UNFP Trophies since he does not even appear in the standard team for the 2021-2022 Ligue 1 season, Lucas Paqueta has a little revenge that the Brazilian midfielder from Olympique Lyonnais must appreciate at his fair value since it comes from the public. Indeed, via its site and social networks, Ligue 1 organized a vote among football fans and asked in particular who was the best foreign player in the Championship. And for a majority of the more than 20,000 voters, it was Lucas Paqueta who was elected, even if the player recruited by Juninho at AC Milan had a complicated end to the season with his club.

Lucas Paqueta is ahead of Lionel Messi and Neymar, just that

It is necessarily a satisfaction for the Brazilian international, who is ahead of Lionel Messi, Neymar and the other foreign stars of Paris Saint-Germain. It now remains to be seen whether Lucas Paqueta will be able to defend his title next season, since his departure during the summer transfer window is a possibility that Jean-Michel Aulas and Vincent Ponsot do not reject. The sale of the Brazilian midfielder is likely to constitute a huge financial contribution for Olympique Lyonnais during the summer. And this even if the arrival of a new investor will make this requirement much less essential, at least that is what OL supporters hope.
