Enyeama misses out on French goalkeeper award

The Lille man lost the best goalkeeper title to Salvatore Sirigu in a ceremony conducted in Paris on Sunday evening
Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has missed out on being named the best goalkeeper in the French Ligue 1 at an awards ceremony on Sunday evening by the Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionnels (UNFP), the umbrella body of professional players.

The Lille goalkeeper could not stop Paris Saint Germain's Salvatore Sirigu from retaining his title.

The Italian also edged out Marseille's Steve Mandanda and Saint Etienne's Stéphane Ruffier.

Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic retained his best player title and also won the award for goal of the season after scoring 25 times with 13 assists.

"I think this is the best in my career," Ibrahimovic said after getting his award. "This is a great honour for me. I thank all my teammates, the staff, the club and the supporters."

He beat PSG team mates Thiago Motta and Thiago Silva as well as Monaco's James Rodriguez to the title.
