Yann Sommer wins February Player of the Month
Yann Sommer has also won the "Player of the Month" award for February

Yann Sommer has been voted February’s Player of the Month by the Gladbach fans. The goalkeeper saw off competition from Cristoph Kramer and Denis Zakaria to win the award, presented by Cichon Personalmanagement.

Yann Sommer has now completed a hat-trick after being winning the award for the third month in a row and was the clear winner in Feburary after taking 76% of the vote. Cristoph Kramer claimed 19% whilst compatriot Denis Zakaria took five percent.

Despite Sommer conceding seven goals in February's four games, Gladbach fans still knew to look past that and honour their custodian for his performances. In all four matches, Borussia's number one was a reliable backstop, putting in strong displays not only in the 2-0 win against Schalke and the 1-1 draw vs. Frankfurt, but also in the 3-0 losses against Hertha HSC and VfL Wolsburg, where he prevented both teams from scoring even more.

The players of the month this season:

August: Florian Neuhaus

September: Alassane Plea

October: Jonas Hofmann

November: Thorgan Hazard

December: Yann Sommer

January: Yann Sommer

February: Yann Sommer
