Berlin – The award could have gone to one of many players. After all, there was a lot for Hertha fans to be excited about in the first half of the season. In the end, it came down to the final three of Maximilian Mittelstädt, Marko Grujic and Valentino Lazaro for the award. The fans had to choose their favourite through ‘likes’ on the Hertha social media channels.
Ultimately, it was Lazaro who took home the spoils and with that, he adds to his previous accolade of player of the 17/18 season. The Austrian has been exceptional ever since his move to the capital and has been one of the first names on the team sheet all season long. Lazaro played all 19 Bundesliga games in their entirety in the Hinrunde, scoring two goals and assisting four in that time. All Hertha fans will now be hoping that ‘Tino’ can build on his early season success and continue to tear it up in the white and blue!
