A deserved award for our youngster.

Ousmane Dembele has been on fire lately, and people are starting to take notice.

Dembele managed 2 goals and 2 assists in December, but played even better than his stats show. Now, Bundesliga fans have voted him as December’s Player of the Month.

Dembele beat out some quality competition for the award. Thiago, Sandro Wagner, and Robert Lewandowski all finished behind him in the voting.

The 19-year-old was a highly regarded talent when he joined Dortmund from Rennes this past summer. Still, he’s somehow managed to exceed expectations lately. The French international has tallied 5 goals in all competitions so far this season.

His pace and dribbling is already world class. The thought of him continuing to develop his other attributes is scary. This kid looks like he’s on a path towards greatness.

And I’m sure he’ll pick up a few more of these awards along the way.
