Camavinga takes 5th place
While in 2019 the first tricolor, Matteo Guendouzi, was only in 17th place in the standings, this year we find a Frenchman at the top of the basket. Eduardo Camavinga (50 points), the nugget of Stade Rennais, is rewarded for his very good debut among professionals by finishing in 5th position, just behind Jadon Sancho (Dortmund, 4th, 80 points) and in front of great talents like Phil Foden ( Manchester City, 7th, 36 points) or Mason Greenwood (Manchester United, 12th, 7 points). Note the presence in the standings of Jonathan David (1 point), the LOSC striker, in 17th place. The Canadian, in difficulty with his club since the start of the season, had distinguished himself in 2020 with his former team, La Gantoise.
