He is one of the fan favourities, and that came through in the voting. On the FC website, Ellyes Skhiri secured the Golden Goat ahead of team-mates, Kingsley Ehizibue and Birger Verstraete. With 39% of the vote, he is the first winner of the award in the 2019-20 season.

In August, Skhiri showed what FC fans can look forward to. Despite having no pre-season, Skhiri made his first appearance against VfL Wolfsburg and looked assured as a substitute. He then started the game against Borussia Dortmund and set up Dominick Drexler’s opening goal. The Tunisian midfielder made the assist for Anthony Modeste’s header against Freiburg, before a mazy run won the game in the last minute. However, Skhiri tireless running, tackling and interceptions have meant he is never far from the fans’ attention.
