Kasper Dolberg has been named OGC Nice's Player of the Year after the Denmark international striker enjoyed an eye-catching debut season in Ligue 1.

Dolberg arrived in France from Ajax last summer, and scored twice in his opening four league appearances to announce himself on the Ligue 1 scene.

 

The 22-year-old netted twice in big wins over Olympique Lyonnais and — in the final match of the truncated 2019-20 season — derby rivals AS Monaco.

He also registered three assists in his 23 appearances, and got an impressive 78.1 per cent of his shots on target, the best ratio in any of Europe's top five leagues for a player taking at least 20 shots on goal.

 

"Kasper is a player who's always on the move and who manages to anticipate a huge number of things," said Nice boss Patrick Vieira following his forward's Côte d'Azur derby-deciding double. "He suffered a lot in the first half because he was a little bit isolated, but he scored two important goals for us."
