Samir Nasri named French footballer of the year
Wednesday 15 December 2010
Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has been voted French player of the year by France Football magazine.
The 23-year-old former Marseille man, who was not part of Les Bleus' shambolic 2010 World Cup campaign in South Africa, topped the voting with 99.5 points from Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda (90) and Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (83).
Lyon playmaker Yoann Gourcuff won the prestigious award last year, with Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery having taken the accolade in 2007 and 2008.
