Four players were nominated for the 'Hopper of the Month August' presented by Synergetics. In addition to Abrashi, Fink, Tobers and Corbeanu were also up for selection. In the end, however, the GC captain clearly came out on top in the voting and received the most votes of all GC fans.
The captain has not missed a single minute of the current season. No one embodies GC as strongly as he does; with his presence in midfield and his commitment, he is almost indispensable. In the month of August, he played three games and contributed an eye-catching assist in the 3:1 win against Basel.
Amir Abrashi on the award: "I would like to thank all the GC fans who voted for me. It is a great honour for me to receive this award. But the focus lies on tomorrow's game, I and especially the team want to get the three points at all costs. That is my priority."
