Last night two Frenchmen took centre stage at the annual London Football Awards.
West Ham United’s super signing and French attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet scooped up the most prestigious gong of the night, bagging the Player of the Year Award.
Another, perhaps lesser known Frenchman but certainly a rising star also picked up an award at the Battersea Evolution venue last night.
That man was Fulham striker Moussa Dembélé. The French teenager won the Football League Player of the Year award, beating the likes of Alan Judge in the process.
