Boniface sustained an injury at the turn of last year. If not for that, he probably would have registered more goal involvements. Before his injury, the former Royale Union SG star won the Bundesliga Rookie of the Month award four consecutive times.

In a new development, the Bundesliga have announced the nominees for the Rookie award for players, and Boniface made the cut.

Boniface was nominated alongside RB Leipzig star Xavi Simons, who has registered seven goals and eleven assists in 31 games.

Also, he will face competition from Ian Maatsen who plays for Borussia Dortmund on loan from Chelsea. The final nominee is Maximilian Beier, who has 15 goals and two assists in 32 Bundesliga games.
