The choice has been made: BVB star Erling Haaland is the first “Player of the Month” in the new Bundesliga season! The Norwegian prevailed against Robert Lewandowski and teammate Giovanni Reyna, among others.
Right at the start of the season, Haaland is in excellent shape again. The many rumors of change from the summer don’t seem to interest the 21-year-old at all – instead, he just keeps on shooting.
In August, the attacker had three hits and three assists in three Bundesliga games, and no other player had more direct goal participation. So it is not surprising that Haaland was named POTM August.
It is the second award of this kind for the Norwegian, as he was also named Player of the Month (November) last season.
