SV Werder Bremen’s hitman is just getting warmed up.

Bundesliga’s new FIFA 23 ‘Player of the Month’ (POTM) award was given to SV Werder Bremen’s established striker, Niclas Füllkrug.

Though the club currently sits eighth in the league table, 29-year old Niclas Füllkrug is Bundesliga’s top scorer, grabbing 8 goals and 2 assists in his last 10 domestic matches.

In his current hot form, the team can realistically aim for a better finish before the end of the year, maybe even competing for a UEFA Champions League spot too.

Coming back to the present, though, Füllkrug will be receiving a new POTM player card in FIFA 23, boosting his in-game stats significantly.

Here’s the official EA video announcing his selection:

When it comes to his actual Ultimate Team (UT) card, take a look at it below:

  • Dribbling: 82 (+12)
  • Pace: 73 (+12)
  • Passing: 73 (+11)

Füllkrug is a traditional striker, using his strong physicality to beat opposition defenders before powering shots past goalkeepers.

In fact, his physique is an important element for Werder Bremen’s tactics, capitalising on his height and strength to create openings for wingers to take advantage of.

Below, you can find the complete breakdown of Füllkrug’s POTM card and its stats:
