Lyon striker Karim Benzema was named Ligue 1 player of the year on Sunday.

The France international, who is the top scorer in Ligue 1 with 19 goals, beat off stiff competition from Les Gones and Les Bleus team-mate Jeremy Toulalan, Marseille forward Mamadou Niang and Bordeaux midfielder Wendel.

Benzema, 20, has been a revelation this season as his goals have fired Lyon to the brink of their seventh successive Ligue 1 title - a trophy he will hope to add to the individual accolade on Saturday.
