Zapped by the UNFP Trophies, Lucas Paqueta can console himself with the honorary title of best foreigner in Ligue 1.
Via its website and social networks, the LFP organized a vote among Ligue 1 followers to elect the best recruit or the best foreigner of the season. For a majority of more than 20,000 voters, it was Lucas Paqueta who was the best foreigner of the 2021-2022 season in Ligue 1. Excellent during the first part of the season with Olympique Lyonnais, the Brazilian international experienced a much more complicated calendar year 2022. Juninho’s departure affected him and the adventure turned sour with OL to the point that Lucas Paqueta now finds himself on the list of undesirables, whom Jean-Michel Aulas wants to sell for more than 50 million euros. euros on the transfer market. On social networks, this election of Lucas Paqueta has in any case created a buzz and the supporters of Olympique de Marseille, for whom Gerson deserved this title, did not fail to point out what they consider to be an injustice.

“Gerson has a Paqueta in each leg” writes for example Titi (you’re the boss), one of the most popular Twittos in Marseille, the one who welcomes each recruit at the airport during the transfer window. Many fans were on the same wavelength this Monday after the election of Lucas Paqueta in favor of Gerson. “Can’t wait for Gerson to play in Ligue 1” quips an OM supporter. Others embrace. “I swear Gerson had a better season than him and that in every way. Statistically, defensively, offensively, mentally short”, “Gerson’s season crushes him with his eyes closed”, “Gerson Majer Fofana whose ice skating? » or “Too bad that Gerson was born in Boulogne sur Mer, he could have applied” have joked the supporters of Olympique de Marseille, delighted by the excellent season of Gerson and who obviously consider that the best foreigner of the season in Ligue 1 is number 8 of OM.
