Nicholas Nkoulou (Marseille), Henri Bédimo (Montpellier) and Aurelien Chedjou (Lille) are the three Cameroonian players who are in the running for the Rfi/Foé award for African footballers in the French Ligue 1. As the name indicates, this award was set up in memory of the legendary Cameroonian midfielder Marc Vivien Foé who died on the field of play during the 2003 Confederations Cup in France. The award is intended to celebrate the most outstanding African player in the French league. The trio is part of a 1o man list in which we have other prominent Ligue 1 African players like André Ayew. The first edition was won by Cote d’Ivoire’s Gervinho. The jury is made up of journalists and the winner will be made known in May. If one must dabble at guessing, then I think Henri Bédimo and Nicholas Nkoulou are best placed to win this award given their scintillating performances with their respective clubs.
