Hakimi Named Fastest Player In The German Bundesliga | See Full List

Hakimi has impressed domestically and in Europe this season and now has been named the fastest player in the league, MySportDab reports.

Borussia Dortmund Achraf Hakimi has been named the Bundesliga’s fastest player on record.

The Real Madrid loanee’s feat marking the third time this season that a fresh face has appeared on the top 10 list.

The Germany’s top flight only began collecting detailed data in the 2011-12 season.

Current Arsenal man and former Dortmund player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s is at number seven.

Hakimi, still just 21, first broke into the top 10 during Lucien Favre’s side’s action-packed 3-3 draw at home to RB Leipzig.

Clocking a top speed of 22.49mph (36.20 km/h), according to the Bundesliga’s official website, to take him to the top of the charts.

Hakimi literally hit his stride, beating his own record with an improved speed of 22.67mph (36.49 km/h) when Dortmund trounced Union Berlin 5-0.

Marco Reus, Hakimi’s captain, earlier this season described the wing-back as one of the key cogs in Favre’s attacking machine.

“Achraf is a real weapon for us,” he told reporters. “His speed is incredible.”

Indeed, Hakimi’s value to the Dortmund cause is such that the Moroccan international has not missed a single Bundesliga match this term.

Scoring four goals and laying on 10 assists throughout the campaign to date, while also netting four goals in eight Champions League appearances.

Kingsley Coman improved his personal best earlier in the season during Bayern Munich’s clash with Paderborn.
