Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi has been named as the Bundesliga Rookie of the Month for November.

It is the second time in succession that the 20-year-old won the award, having been awarded the accolade in October as well.

Hakimi, who is on-loan at the German Bundesliga club from Real Madrid, beat off competition from Fortuna Dusseldorf midfielder Dodi Lukebakio and Mainz 05 forward Jean-Philippe Mateta.

The 20-year-old has played a key role in Dortmund's unbeaten start to the league season, filling in at both left and right-back.

Dortmund currently sit seven points clear of their closest rivals following 14 rounds of league fixtures.

Hakimi has played 14 times for Dortmund across all competitions, chipping in with a goal and six assists.

Fellow Moroccan international Noussair Mazraoui has clinched successive Rookie of the Month awards for Ajax Amsterdam in the Dutch Eredivisie.
