By Hidayah Ali
The D1 Arkema awards gala was held on Monday night, and many Paris Saint-Germain players were gifted trophies for their 2022/23 season accomplishments.
Here is the full list of winners
Player of the season:
Winner: Kadidiatou Diani (PSG)
The Parisian striker was very deservingly awarded Player of the Season. Diani is the D1 top scorer, with 17 goals during 17 games, and currently has provided the second most assists. The French striker had a successful season, her best professional season to date.
This is Kadidiatou's second time winning this award, as she did back in 2021.
Diani becomes PSG's second player in a row to win this award, as Marie-Antoinette Katoto was the winner last year.
Goal of the season:
Winner: Lieke Martens (PSG)
This was the only award chosen by the public, and it was a close one between Martens and Faustine Robert.
At the end of the day, PSG's Dutch player was awarded for her outstanding goal. Lieke's first season with the team, and she's already claimed a massive achievement. Well done to Martens!
Best goalkeeper :
Winner: Christiane Endler (Lyon)
The Olympique Lyonnais player was given this title for the third season in a row.
Best young talent :
Winners: Melchie Dumornay (Reims)
Reims's Dumornay was recognized for her growing talent and was given her first award in this category, a big title she can take when she joins Lyon later in July.
Best manager :
Winner: Sonia Bompastor (Lyon)
Bompastor was a highly decorated player with Montpellier and Lyon back in her playing days. And now, the first female player to win the UEFA Champions League as a player and a manager has been awarded the best manager of the season.
While she couldn't get her team to another Champions League final, she's won the Coupe De France and has a tight grip on the First-Division title.
The best 11 winners:
