Leipzig: Nkunku in the Bundesliga, a dictatorship! – Soccer

Author of monumental performances, Christopher Nkunku was voted best Bundesliga player for the fourth time this season. A record for the RB Leipzig striker, who literally walks on the German championship.

Nkunku grew up in Germany.

If Kylian Mbapp will be, barring a huge surprise, the best player in Ligue 1, Karim Benzema will surely win the title of best French player abroad.

Despite everything, the UNFP made a huge blunder by forgetting Christopher Nkunku (24) since Mike Maignan, Tho Hernandez, N’Golo Kant and Ousmane Dembl were nominated with the Real Madrid striker. In any case, in Germany, the RB Leipzig striker enjoys the respect he deserves.

I’m going to beat the Bundesliga

Indeed, the former Paris Saint-Germain literally crushes the Bundesliga. The only player to appear in the TOP 5 of the best scorers (4th, 20 goals) and the best passers (2nd, 14 offerings), the French international leaves only crumbs to the competition. For the third consecutive month, Nkunku was named the Bundesliga’s best player in April. Since the start of the season, the Francilien has won this award four times (October, February, March, April). A real dictatorship while his club is only in fourth place in the standings.

Unsurprisingly, no player has managed such a performance since the creation of this distinction in 2018. Only Marco Reus, three times in 2018-2019, as well as Kai Havertz (2018-2019), Timo Werner (2019-2020) and Erling Braut Hland (2020-2021), both recovered, had managed to win this award more than once in a single season. In the space of one exercise, Nkunku has even become the player who has won the most player of the month awards in the history of the Bundesliga.

Never seen elsewhere

In the other major European championships, no player has managed to achieve such a feat. In La Liga (since 2013-2014), Lionel Messi had only obtained 8 player of the month titles with FC Barcelona. In the Premier League, Harry Kane and Sergio Agero hold the record in this category with 7 titles since the start of their respective careers. Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic (3 times in 2013-2014) and Javier Pastore (3 times in 2014-2015), in Ligue 1, have come close to this performance. This shows the monumental level reached by Nkunku in recent months.
