FIFA 22 Bundesliga POTM: Nkunku among May contenders with record FIFTH award on the cards

The Team of the Season (TOTS) campaign continues in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, with the La Liga TOTS now taking centre stage.

Following the Bundesliga TOTS squad, another German league special card will be added to the mix when May's Bundesliga Player of the Month (POTM) arrives in FUT 22.

As ever, the winner will receive a juiced up card in FUT 22 with boosted ratings, and you can unlock the item for your club by completing the Squad Building Challenges that accompany it.

Take a look at which players are in contention for the May Player of the Month and keep up to date with all the latest news right here.

Release Date

The Bundesliga season has come to an end and there are no more matches to be played in May, so we will likely see an official shortlist revealed soon.

The current Christopher Nkunku April Player of the Month SBC expires on Friday, 10 June, so there will be a bit of a wait for another Bundesliga POTM SBC to go live.

Friday, 3 June is the absolute earliest we could see the new SBC come, but it will likely arrive a bit later than that as EA needs to allow time for votes.

Jonas Hofmann

Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Jonas Hofmann leads the way for goal contributions in May, with four goals and one assist in just three Bundesliga appearances.

The German has helped his side to an unbeaten final month in the 2021/22 campaign as they won two and drew one during the month of May.

Patrik Schick

Czech international striker Patrik Schick was on fire during May, having scored three goals whilst picking up one assist too.

The Bayer Leverkusen man is perhaps the front runner for the Player of the Month award after his team won all three matches they played in May.

Moussa Diaby

French winger Moussa Diaby is the second Bayer Leverkusen player in contention to win the POTM award this month.

The 22-year-old has three assists and one goal to his name over the course of the final month of the Bundesliga season.

Christopher Nkunku

It wouldn't be a FIFA 22 Bundesliga Player of the Month contenders list without mentioning France sensation Christopher Nkunku!

The RB Leipzig man netted another three goals in three matches, however his side's one victory in May will likely mean he will miss out on the award this time around.

April POTM Winner

RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku was the recipient of the April Bundesliga POTM award for a ridiculous fourth time this season.

The Frenchman picked up a 92 OVR POTM card for April, following the 91-rated special card that he received in March.

Nkunku's RB Leipzig managed to win three games from four in April and the France international played a key role once again for his team.

The attacking midfielder scored two goals and registered four assists in four league appearances during April 2022.

Nkunku's incredible form this season has not gone unnoticed, with clubs such as Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain interested in signing the 24-year-old this summer.
