Philipp Köhn now is the lucky owner of five Player of the Month trophies on his mantelpiece – and hasn't he deserved them! With a series of sensational saves in the UEFA Europa League and the ADMIRAL Bundesliga, the Swiss shot stopper saw off Amar Dedic in a close battle with over 20,000 votes cast.
Overview of the results:
Philipp Köhn (49.19 %)
The Swiss shot stopper showed in February that he has not lost any of his superb form over the winter break. He kept three clean sheets and conceded more than one goal only once, in the second leg against AS Roma, although the week before he had pulled off one monster save after another.
Amar Dedic (45.46 %)
Adar's equaliser put us back into the game against Sturm Graz and he showed at other times in the month that he can support our attack from the right-back position. He provided the assist against Lustenau for our second goal, while in the first leg against AS Roma he had the most touches of the ball in the opponents' area.
Nicolas Capaldo (3.03 %)
Our gaucho in the middle showed his fox in the box qualities in February, with three big goals, and his winner against AS Roma was a particular treat. Nicolas’s strong performances after the winter break were by no means to be expected when you consider how long the 24-year-old has been out injured.
Strahinja Pavlovic (2.32 %)
Anyone who wants to see how important the sturdy Serb is for our defence just has to take a look at his appearance numbers. In no match in February (apart from the second leg against AS Roma, which he was suspended for) did Strahinja fail to play for the full 90 minutes. He showed his attacking worth in the home Europa League meeting by setting up Capaldo's winning goal. That made it all the more of a blow that we had to play in Rome without the 21-year-old.
