By Daily Sports Nigeria on April 19, 2024

Super Eagles striker, Victor Boniface, has expressed delight at being nominated for a place in the 2023/24 Bundesliga Team of The Season, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

The list of nominees was announced in a statement on the league’s website on Wednesday and Boniface’s club, Bayer Leverkusen, posted their eight players who made the shortlist on X formerly Twitter, on Thursday.

“He scores goals, Boniface!” the club wrote on their social media account.

Boniface reposted the post from his club and added, “Not bad for my first season.”


The 23-year-old was included in the shortlist alongside five goalkeepers, 10 defenders, 15 midfielders and nine other attackers.

According to the statement on the German top-flight website, all nominated players were selected based on their performance on official Bundesliga statistics.

Boniface made the list despite being out of action for three months after suffering a groin injury while preparing for the African Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles in January.

The Nigeria international did not return to action for Bayer Leverkusen until April.

He contributed 11 goals and nine assists in 18 league matches as Leverkusen won their first-ever Bundesliga title with five games to spare while remaining unbeaten.

Boniface was also named the Bundesliga Rookie of the Month five consecutive times between August and December 2023.

Seven other Leverkusen players made the nomination list with Granit Xhaka, Jeremy Frimpong, Alejandro Grimaldo, Florian Writz, Jonathan Tah, Exequiel Palacios, and Lukas Hradecky joining the Nigerian.
