After an illustrious season with AS Monaco and a triumphant win at the African Cup of Nations representing Ivory Coast, defender Wilfried Singo emerges as one of the eleven contenders vying for the esteemed Marc-Vivien-Foé prize. This accolade honors the finest African player gracing the fields of Ligue 1.

Singo’s tenure at AS Monaco has been nothing short of stellar, as he seamlessly integrated into the squad following his transfer from Torino in mid-August. Instantly asserting himself as a mainstay, he appeared in 20 league fixtures, showcasing his prowess on the pitch.

The 23-year-old defender wasted no time in leaving his mark, notably netting a crucial header in just his third outing against Lens (3-0), thereby setting the stage for victory.

Possessing a versatility that allows him to excel both in central defense and on the right flank, Singo consistently delivered top-tier performances, successfully neutralizing formidable adversaries such as Kylian Mbappé and Bradley Barcola during a memorable encounter against PSG at Stade Louis-II.

Thus, his inclusion among the nominees for the Marc-Vivien-Foé prize, a distinction reserved for the premier African player in Ligue 1, as determined by a panel of expert journalists and presented by RFI and France 24, stands as a testament to his outstanding contributions following his triumph at the AFCON with Ivory Coast.

Singo’s journey to this nomination exemplifies his unwavering dedication and exceptional talent, underscoring his significant impact both domestically and internationally.

As anticipation builds for the announcement of the award recipient, fans and pundits alike eagerly await the outcome, recognizing Singo’s remarkable achievements and the honor they bring to Ivory Coast and AS Monaco alike.
