Frimpong is 2022/23 Player of the Season

Bayer 04 fans and members again had the opportunity this year to vote for their Player of the Season. A total of 4,980 Werkself supporters took part in the vote. And Jeremie Frimpong came out on top – congratulations!

In a Black and Red shirt, the wizard on the wing scored nine goals and provided eleven assists putting him second in the list of top scorers at the club behind teammate Moussa Diaby (14 goals). Frimpong last scored in the 4-1 away win at Union Saint-Gilloise in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Dutchman, who has been under the Bayer Cross since January 2021, has made 95 appearances and played over 7,000 minutes for the Werkself. Patrik Schick won the vote last season.

Wirtz and Andrich complete TOP three

In second place behind Frimpong was the winner from 2020/21. Florian Wirtz made an impressive comeback after recovering from a torn cruciate injury. He has also been nominated for this year's Golden Boy award. You can vote for the Germany international HERE. In third place is midfielder Robert Andrich who stood out last season playing in a back three for the first time under head coach Xabi Alonso.

The ranking:

  1. Jeremie Frimpong (30.7% of the votes)
  2. Florian Wirtz (18.4%)
  3. Robert Andrich (17.6%)     
  4. Moussa Diaby (10.5%)
  5. Jonathan Tah (7.4%)

The trophy for a Player of the Season would be presented as usual at the season launch. This year also brings the first award of a Women’s Player of the Season for the 2022/23 campaign. You can vote for your favourite Women's team player HERE up to 5 July.
