European champions with Portugal from 2016, Jose Fonte joined Lille at the start of the season, transforming the club from a team that battles to avoid relegation to the second best in French football.

Les Dogues had the best defense in the league this season, as they conceded only 33 goals and noted 15 clean sheets.

The Portuguese played a vital role in Lille’s success, helping them to qualify for the 2019-20 Champions League campaign. He is the only non-PSG player on the list.
