The award has been presented since the 1993–94 season and the first winner of the award was Bordeaux midfielder Zinedine Zidane. The current holder is Kylian Mbappé, who won the award for his performances throughout the 2017–18 season for Paris Saint-Germain. Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappé are the only players to have won this award twice.
