At number fourteen in the league, RKC Waalwijk has provided the most players for the Eredivisie Team of the Month, along with AZ. The club from Waalwijk can reflect on a fantastic month. Only AZ won more points (12) than RKC Waalwijk (8), and no other team had so few points scored against them (1, just like FC Groningen).
The full Eredivisie Team of the Month for February: Kostas Lamprou (RKC Waalwijk), Yukinari Sugawara (AZ), Melle Meulensteen, Ahmed Touba (both RKC Waalwijk), Owen Wijndal (AZ), Jens Toornstra (Feyenoord), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Orkun Kökçü (Feyenoord), Donyell Malen (PSV), Sébastien Haller (Ajax) abd Myron Boadu (AZ).
The Team of the Month is created using statistics and fans’ votes.
As in previous months, the scores for Player of the Month are drawn up for players objectively based on over 60 statistics. Only players who have played at least two-thirds of the total number of game minutes are eligible for the prize. Something that has changed since January, however, is that fans’ votes submitted through the Man of the Match selection are now also included in the count.
The Eredivisie Player of the Month award is an initiative of Eredivisie CV in collaboration with ESPN and KPN, main sponsor of the Eredivisie.
