Borussia fans have voted Patrick Herrmann as the Player of the Month for March, ahead of teammates Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi and Alassane Plea.
Herrmann narrowly eked out a win over Sommer, ending the keeper’s streak of being named “Player of the Month” three times in a row. The winger received 47 per cent of the vote, compared to 45 per cent for Sommer. Nico Elvedi ended with five per cent, and Alassane Plea with three per cent of the vote.
Herrmann was named man of the match in Gladbach’s 3-1 defeat against Düsseldorf on matchday 27, where he came on as a substitute in the first half. He immediately made an impact, connecting with Lars Stindl shortly before feeding a pass into the box for Plea. Herrmann came close to getting one for his side in the second half, but his shot sailed just wide of the net.
