Super Eagles forward, Victor Boniface has won an unprecedented quadruple of Bundesliga Rookie of the Month awards, after the Bayer Leverkusen star striker was again named winner of the award, for the month of November.
Boniface arrived in Germany from Belgian side, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in the summer, and has since the 2023/24 German top flight season began in August, scooped the coverted gong, reserved for players transferred to Bundesliga clubs, from other leagues.
During the spell, that's from August to November, Boniface has had 20 Goals and Assists contributions, for Bayer Leverkusen, in the 20 games he has played thus far this season.
His last goal contribution was an exquisite finish, that helped Xabi Alonso's side to rescue a 1-1 draw at home to Borussia Durtmond, in a match watched by his grandmother, and other family members.
In addition to helping Leverkusen earn a share of the spoils on the fateful day, Boniface who will be 23-years-old on December 23rd, had his club preserve their unbeaten status in the German top flight, and still leads the Bundesliga log with 35 points, 3 points clear of second placed Bayern Munich.
