Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé has been declared the French league’s top scorer this season because he finished with more goals from open play than Monaco forward Wissam Ben Yedder.
Both players had 18 goals before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The French league was canceled last week with 10 matches remaining and runaway leader PSG was declared champion.
Ratification on the French league’s decision was made on Thursday because the 21-year-old Mbappé, who was last season’s top scorer with 33 goals, got his goals in open play while three of Ben Yedder’s were from penalty kicks.
