Goalkeeper – Yann Sommer (Borussia Mochengladbach)Sommer is one of the main reasons Gladbach are playing Champions League football next season. The Swiss international has played every minute this season, has the highest save percentage & made 128 saves, the most in the league. His lightning quick reflexes allow him to make some truly incredible saves, like this one finger stop against Bayern back in December.
Left Back – Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich)Nicknamed the “FC Bayern Roadrunner” by Thomas Müller he is the fastest player in the leagues history after hitting 22.7mph against Werder Bremen in Matchday 32. Rightly awarded the Bundesliga’s Rookie of the Year, Alphonso is possibly the best LB in the world right now. Still only 19 I can’t wait to see what kind of player he develops into.
Centre Back – Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig)This has been a real breakthrough season for the Frenchman. He’s developed into one of the best ball playing defenders in the world with a 91% pass completion. Combine that with his pace, strength & positioning he has every tool a modern-day Centre Back needs. With one year left on his contract & a reported release clause of £54.7 million a move to one Europe’s elite looks certain this summer.
Centre Back – Martin Hinteregger (Eintracht Frankfurt)Hinteregger has demonstrated his attacking instincts as well as his defensive ones this season. He’s scored 8 goals making him the highest scoring defender in Europe. An interesting character off the pitch, the Austrian is a qualified Helicoptor pilot with aspirations of becoming a Rescue Pilot or working for the Police once he hangs up his boots.
Right Back – Achraf Hakimi 21 (Borussia Dortmund)Hakimi has been one of the best Right Backs in the world this season contributing 5 goals & 10 assists. Briefly, he held the record for fastest player in Bundesliga history & surprisingly Real Madrid have made him available on the transfer list. He’s missed just one game all season & Dortmund would love to make his loan move permanent but the financial impact of COVID-19 is preventing them. A €40 million move to Inter Milan looks Hakimi’s likely destination.
Centre Midfield – Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)One of the first names on Bayern’s team sheet, Kimmich will wear the Captain’s armband in the near future. No one has touched the ball more or covered more ground this season with 3216 touches & 247.3 miles in 33 appearances. His chip on Roman Burki against Dortmund is one of the iconic moments of the season. No one expected him to do that & it was the moment Bayern won their 8th straight title.
