Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen was named Player of the Month in November in the Eredivisie on Friday.

AZ defender Owen Wijndal was voted the best player under the age of 21.

Klaassen, who came over from Werder Bremen for 12 million euros in October, had a strong last month at Ajax.

He made the opening goal in the matches against FC Utrecht (0-3) and FC Emmen (0-5) and also provided an assist against Emmen.

The seventeen-time international of the Dutch national team, who returned to Orange in November after three years, recorded the highest passing accuracy (91.4 percent) of all players with at least five appearances in the Eredivisie.

Klaassen is the seventh Ajax player in total and the second in a row to be named Player of the Month, a prize that has been awarded by the Eredivisie CV since September 2017.

The scores are objectively assigned to players based on more than sixty different statistics.

David Neres (April 2018), Hakim Ziyech (October 2018 and August 2019), Nicolás Tagliafico (November 2018), Frenkie de Jong (December 2018 and February 2019), Dusan Tadic (March 2019) and Lassina Traoré (October 2019) went Klaassen in front of.
