Members vote Diaby as Player of the Season 2019/20

Bayer 04 members were able to vote for their Player of the Season 2019/20 again this year. It was a close decision – but one player came out on top in the end. Having arrived from Paris St Germain before the start of the season, Moussa Diaby thrilled the Werkself fans from the start.

With over 2,500 participants, the French winger had the most votes with 26.9%. The 21-year-old just pipped last year's winner Kai Havertz (25.2%). The new Werkself captain Charles Aránguiz came in third with exactly 12% of the votes.

"It means a lot to me that I was able to thrill the Bayer 04 fans in my first season. This award is a great honour for me. It motivates me to give everything for the Werkself in the coming season," said Moussa Diaby, highly delighted with the title.

Shirt as first prize

Bayer 04 again provided great prizes for Bayer 04 Club members who took part in the vote. The main winner, Charles M. from Leverkusen can look forward to receiving the shirt of his namesake Charles Aránguiz worn in the Europa League game against Rangers. Absolutely unique – including the 'Thank you' lettering above the badge. Very fitting that the Leverkusener also voted for the young Frenchman: "The decisive factor with Moussa Diaby for me was his development into a spectacular attacker. His fast pace in combination with his dribbling ability excited me. I'm very happy that my vote for him turned out to win the main prize."

In addition, Claudia C. from Bergisch Gladbach won the new home shirt and David W. from Remscheid the new away shirt. On top of that, Bayer 04 gave away four vouchers for €19.04 at the Bayer 04 shop. The winners have already been informed. Bayer 04 offer congratulations and wish all the winners lots of fun with the prizes.

Werkself review #B04SVW: A happy end to the fairy tale

14 April 2024 will go down in history at Bayer Leverkusen. We’ll try to reconstruct it all for you. Not only are the Werkself the first new champions of Germany since Wolfsburg in 2009, but only twice before in Bundesliga history has such the title been won earlier than Matchday 29. It ended Bayern Munich’s 11-year reign as champions. And Leverkusen are still undefeated in their 43 competitive matches this season, equalling the all-time record of a team in the five major European leagues. We round it all up in our Werkself review…
