Boniface Nominated For Rookie Player Of The Year Award


Following his distinctive performance this season, Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Bayer Leverkusen attacker Victor Boniface has been nominated for the Rookie Player of the Year.

Boniface moved to the Bundesliga side last summer after a superb outing in the Belgian Jupiler League with the Union St Gillaloise.

Upon his arrival in Germany, the Nigerian International won the Rookie Player of the month for 4 consecutive times before injury set in to scuttle his progress in the team.

Despite the injury, the skillful player was able to notch a double-digit goal.

He was nominated on Monday morning alongside Xavi Simon, Ian Matsen, and Maximilian Beier.

Leverkusen defeated Bochum 0-5 last weekend with Boniface scoring one of the goals.
