Sebastiaan Bornauw may have just arrived in the summer but he is already an important part of the FC defence. The 20-year-old came from RSC Anderlecht and has already made 16 appearances in the Bundesliga for 1. FC Köln. It’s not just been in defence that the Belgian has done well, but also going forward. He has already scored three goals this season, including two in December: against Leverkusen and Frankfurt. Including a fine showing against Bremen, he was a worthy winner of the award.
Sebastiaan Bornauw said: “I’m proud and feel honoured to have been voted as Player of the Month. It’s even better, when it is the fans that vote. December took a positive turn for us, after the three wins at the end. Now we want to keep that going. I’m looking ahead and I’m looking forward to the start of the Rückrunde.”
