Marseille’s Algerian forward Ryad Boudebouz is the D5 Player of the Season.

Following the sale of Giorgian De Arrascaeta to Villarreal, a lot was put on the shoulders of Ryad Boudebouz to lead the line at Marseille in Season 9.

He delivered with 19 goals and 3 assists, with 7 Man of the Match awards and importantly only 2 yellow cards.

Unfortunately for Marseille, in a season where the bottom half of the table were involved in six point matches each week, two separate ankle injuries late in the season cost him 5 matches in the run in, which contributed to the relegation to Division 5. Put simply, he was head and shoulders above the other strikers, where Acosta struggled after he lost a step of pace. He was the silver lining in a tough and disappointing season. We are happy for him to be recognized for his performances … and we are very happy he wants to be here for our next campaign.

Although not enough to save his club from relegation to Division 5, he beat rivals Morgan Sanson and Roberto Firmino to this prized award.

I am looking forward to the challenge in Division 5. I have had a sit down with the manager after he signed to a 3 year deal contingent on promotion back to Division 4. He told me he was counting on me next season and had no interest in selling me … and to be honest I want to be here.
