Ganago continues to grow

Voting on OGCNICE.com, Le Gym supporters elected the 2019-20 Crédit Agricole Young Player of the Season. Let’s begin our countdown to the winner with third-place that went to Ignatius Ganago with 8% of the suffrage.

The young attacker is continuing his apprenticeship at the highest level. Two years after his debut professional campaign in 2017-18, Ignatius Ganago has not stopped improving and enjoyed the best season of his young career.

Making 26 Ligue 1 appearances and playing 1,231 minutes, the 21-year-old became a key member of the squad and a viable attacking option for coach Patrick Vieira, who used him 14 times off the bench, more than any other player.

Ignatius earned his first international cap with Cameroon this year and was the third-most used attacker by Vieira in the 2019-20 campaign, behind Kasper Dolberg (1,896 minutes) and Alexis Claude-Maurice (1,633).

With four goals, he showed he can play in all the attacking positions, using his speed, dribbling skills and finishing ability to great effect.

Against Nîmes, Paris, Metz and Red Star he showed he can find space and keep a cool head in front of goal, netting a career high four times in all competitions.
