Player of the Month voting

From now, FC fans can vote for their Player of the Month for November. Simon Terodde, Jorge Meré and Jhon Cordoba have been nominated.

November started with a negative result for 1. FC Köln; the 0-1 defeat against Hamburg. However, FC responded in perfect fashion five days later when Markus Anfang’s men recorded an 8-1 win over Dynamo Dresden. From there a 3-0 win against Darmstadt and a 4-0 victory against Fürth followed, although the win against Fürth came in December. For the month of November, the following FC players are up for selection as Player of the Month.

Simon Terodde
He is and remains a phenomenon. A hat-trick against Dresden and then the all-important opening goal in Darmstadt. Simon Terodde was again an important factor for the success of 1. FC Köln in November. He currently leads the 2. Bundesliga top-scorer charts with a huge advantage. With the goalscoring ability comes hard work; Terodde regularly covered more than 10 kilometres per game last month – an impressive amount for a striker. He also contested lots of duels, especially in the air.

Jorge Meré
Since the change of formation to a three-man back-line, Jorge Meré has been the lynchpin in the 1. FC Köln defence. In the three games in November, the 21-year-old was especially strong with his slick build-up play and tough tackling. His talent on the ball was there for all to see in the home win against Dresden, where the Spanish under-21 captain recorded an incredible 102 touches and a 94% pass completion rate. Meré was also amongst the best FC players against Hamburg and Darmstadt.

Jhon Cordoba
Since the third minute against Dynamo Dresden, Jhon Cordoba has been in superb form. It was then where the Colombian scored his third goal of the season with a header, and two more goals followed in November. Notably, against Dresden and Darmstadt, Cordoba was a constant headache for the opposition defenders, who couldn’t dispossess him despite their best efforts.
