Joshua Kimmich is one of the cornerstones of FC Bayern's game. With his strong performances at the beginning of the season, the 25-year-old was already voted Player of the Month by the record champions' fans in September. And now Kimmich, whom coach Hansi Flick described as a "key player", has defended this title in October. With one goal and three assists in five matches, Kimmich played a major role in helping Bayern once again claim top spot in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.

It makes it all the more of a shame that Bayern's "mentality monster" (Flick),  suffered a knee injury in the match against Borussia Dortmund, and will now be absent until the end of the year.

Kimmich scored to make it a 2-1 win in the Champions League match away at Lokomotiv Moscow with a spectacular shot.

The record champions fans are also aware of Kimmich's importance and voted the German FCB's outstanding player in October with 31% of the vote. Kimmich beat goalscorer Robert Lewandowski (25%) and Thomas Müller (16%) to the top spot.

It's already the second award that underscores Kimmich's strong performance in October. He'd already won Goal of the Week after Champions League Matchday 2, thanks to a spectacular goal against Lokomotiv Moscow to win the game.
