‘He’s A Special Player’ –Bayer Leverkusen Boss Talks Up Boniface

Bayer Leverkusen head coach Xabi Alonso has showered encomium on Victor Boniface following the forward’s impressive start to life in the Bundesliga.

Boniface linked up with Die Werkself from Belgian Pro League outfit, Union St Gilloise this summer.

The Nigeria international has been one of the standout performers in the opening weeks of the campaign.

The 22-year-old has scored four goals in three league appearances for Bayer Leverkusen this season.

Ahead of this weekend’s league encounter against holders Bayern Munich, Alonso eulogised the striker for his impressive displays for the club.

“He’s a great player, a special player. He’s a striker but he doesn’t just play for himself, he’s generous. We are really happy to have him here,” he told a press conference.

Boniface has won the Bundesliga Rookie and Player of the Month awards for August.

He is only the second player ever to win both awards in the same month.

Former Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland was the first to achieve the feat in January 2020.
