    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

    Striking success for Krzysztof Piątek as he clinches the Player of the Month award for December at Istanbul Basaksehir. The Polish forward, after a slow start with the Turkish club, bounced back into goal-scoring form, netting three goals and providing an assist in a stellar end to 2023.

    Finding His Stride

    In the initial rounds, Piątek logged significant minutes on the field but struggled to convert them into goals, celebrating his first league goals only on November 5. However, December showcased a resurgence for the 28-year-old, with three goals and an assist, contributing to two victories, a draw, and a single defeat for his team.

    Piątek’s stellar performances didn’t go unnoticed, earning him the Player of the Month accolade within the club. This resurgence is not only a triumph for the player but also a promising development for Poland’s national team, grappling with challenges faced by players like Arkadiusz Milik and Dawid Kownacki in their respective clubs.

    As of the 17th round in the Turkish league, Basaksehir FK holds the 13th position with 19 points. Their next fixture is scheduled for January 6, hosting Adana Demirspor.
