Cody Gakpo named Eredivisie player for the month October

Cody Gakpo has been named Eredivisie Player of the Month for the second successive time. Just like he did in September, the 23-year-old forward performed best in October according to statistics and votes from football fans. The Netherlands international was involved in six Eredivisie goals in October, the largest number of all Eredivisie players. Five of them were assists, at least two more than the rest.

Gakpo also created most chances last month (23, at least five more than
his competitors), delivered the most successful crosses (16, at least seven
more) and made the most successful dribbles (16, at least five more). Only
Brian Brobbey, the Johan Cruijff Talent of the Maand, had more shots on target
(11) than the PSV forward (8). Gakpo is the third player to win the Player of
the Month award twice in a row, following in the footsteps of Orkun Kökcü
(February and March 2022) and Oussama Idrissi ( January and February 2020).
Gakpo will receive an upgraded Eredivisie Player of the Month card in FIFA 23
Ultimate Team.
