What an accolade for Robert Lewandowski! The FC Bayern striker has been named Player of the Season in a poll conducted by football magazine 11 Freunde. Last season's Bundesliga top scorer claimed 52 votes.
"I'm very proud of this accolade. The jury consists of many personalities who have achieved everything in football," Lewandowski commented on the title. Among others, Germany head coach Joachim Löw, Germany women's coach Silvia Neid and goalkeeping legend Oliver Kahn are jury members. "I'd like to thank my team-mates in particular, they made it very easy for me to score last year. I hope we'll have similar success in the upcoming season."
Lewandowski is followed by Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 47 votes and Munich man Thomas Müller on 31 points.
