Secure in possession, strong in the challenge and willing to put in the hard yards, new signing Arne Engels has had a brilliant start to life in an Augsburg shirt. As a result, the 19-year-old has been nominated for the ‘Rookie of the Month‘ for January.
As well as the vote for ‘Player of the Month’, the German football league (DFL) also carries out a vote for ‘Rookie of the Month‘. The conditions are that the player is young than 23 years old at the start of the season and has collected lots of points on Fantasy Manager, the DFL’s fantasy football game. Adam Hlozek (Bayer 04 Leverkusen) and Karim Adeyemi (Borussia Dortmund) complete the list alongside Engels.
As well as votes by the club and experts, fans are also able to take part in the vote. The vote for ‘Rookie of the Month for January’ is taking place from Monday (16:00 CET) until Thursday (23:59 CET). You can vote for Arne Engels at www.rookie-award.com!
