Jeremie Frimpong, the Dutch-born Ghanaian defender, has been named the Bayer Munich Player of the Season following an exceptional campaign.
Frimpong received an impressive 30.7% of the votes from the club’s fans, surpassing Florian Wirtz and Robert Andrich to claim the top accolade.
Throughout the season, Frimpong showcased his skills and played a crucial role in helping Leverkusen secure a European spot. He was also instrumental in the team’s journey to the semi-finals of the Europa League.
Expressing his gratitude on Twitter, the 22-year-old Holland youth international wrote, “Blessed. Thank you for naming me Player of the Season, Bayer Leverkusen.”
Frimpong’s contributions were notable, as he scored nine goals and provided 11 assists in the recently concluded campaign, making him the club’s second-highest scorer. Only Moussa Diaby scored more goals than the talented Dutch-Ghanaian defender.
Furthermore, Frimpong displayed impressive speed, ending the season as the club’s second-fastest player with a recorded speed of 36.00 km/h.
Despite his remarkable performances, Frimpong’s international future remains uncertain as he was overlooked twice by the new Dutch manager, Ronald Koeman, in his recent squad selections.
