Boniface has been a revelation for Bayer Leverkusen since he joined, and he has been getting the recognition he deserves
Super Eagles striker Victor Boniface has won the German Bundesliga Rookie Award of the Month for November, Soccernet.ng reports.
Boniface has been a revelation for Bayer Leverkusen since he arrived from Belgian Jupiler League side Royale Union SG in the summer. The 22-year-old has taken the league by storm, registering eight goals and five assists in 13 appearances for Die Werkself.
His performances have been key in Bayer Leverkusen’s run which has seen them go unbeaten in all competitions this season.
Boniface has been handsomely rewarded for his brilliance, as he won the Rookie of the Month awards for August, September, and October.
On Friday, Boniface added another award to his cabinet, as the Bundesliga has now announced him as the player of the Month for November. Despite recording two assists in November, Boniface saw off competition from Xavi Simons and Merlin Rohl to claim a record fourth consecutive time.
Bayer Leverkusen have never won the German Bundesliga, but Boniface will hope that his performances can spur the club to success this season. Die Werkself currently sit at the top of the Bundesliga, three points clear of Bayern Munich who have a goal in hand.
