The Moroccan international will add this monthly accolade to the Dutch footballer of the year and Ajax player of the year awards he won for his performances in the 2017/18 season which saw him finish the year with 9 goals and 15 assists. His performances in the Eredivisie and for Morocco in the World Cup lead to intense interest across Europe but a move failed to materialise.

In October Ajax went unbeaten, only conceding 1 goal in the Champions League to Bayern Munich. During the month Ziyech scored 3 goals, assisted 1, and was named man of the match twice.

Heerenveen midfielder Michel Vlap was named the talent of the month after netting four goals in October.
