Ayews nominated for Marc-Vivien Foe Award

Ghanaian duo Andre and Jordan Ayew have been nominated for the best African footballer in Ligue1 award.

The award, which is named after legendary Cameroon footballer Marc-Vivien Foe is given to the best performer of African decent in the Ligue 1 every season.

The brothers, who have been crucial for Olympique Marseille and FC Lorient respectively this season have been recognised for their hard work and will come up against the likes of Vincent Enyeama and Max-Alain Gradel, among a host of others.

This is the second time Andre Ayew has been nominated for the prestigious award, while brother Jordan gets his name on the list for the first time.

Here’s the list in full:

Jordan Ayew (Lorient, Ghana), André Ayew (Marseille, Ghana), Aymen Abdennour (Monaco, Tunisia), Nabil Dirar (Monaco, Morocco), Max-Alain Gradel (Saint-Etienne, Ivory Coast), Idrissa Gueye (Lille, Senegal), Aissa Mandi (Reims, Algeria), Vincent Enyeama (Lille, Nigeria), Benjamin Moukandjo (Reims, Cameroon) and Clinton N’Jie (Lyon, Cameroon)
