Drexler is Player of the Month

During the New Year, FC fans had the chance to vote for their Player of the Month for December. Dominick Drexler earned the most votes online and has therefore been awarded the Golden Goat.

“I’m really pleased with the recognition,” said Dominick Drexler as he was handed the golden Hennes. For his performances in December, FC fans voted him as the Player of the Month. Drexler, who managed to tally four goals and three assists in four games, earned more than 41% of the vote. He beat out Jhon Cordoba and Simon Terodde as his competition. Drexler: “It was a successful month for us and I’m proud that I could play my part in that.”

In the previous season, the 28-year-old midfielder was Holstein Kiel’s top scorer (12 goals, 11 assists) and has been one of the top performers at 1. FC Köln since his summer move. Up until the first advent, Dominick Drexler made seven assists for his team-mates but only grabbed one goal of his own.

That changed on 1st December against Greuther Fürth. In front of the Südkurve, the Bonn-born man made it 1:0. A brace followed in Regensburg, as well as a superb headed goal against Magdeburg.

His playing style has made it incredibly difficult for the opposition defenders to take him out of the game. His passes and runs from deep into the box are hugely important for how FC play, especially against teams who play a very deep backline.
