League stars honour Robben and Van Gaal

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue May 25, 2010 6:30 pm

Bayern stormed to the league and cup double in 2009-10, and the club has now picked up a double of a different sort. In the long-running annual survey of German top flight footballers conducted by respected journal kicker, FCB comfortably came out top in the two major categories: Arjen Robben was named best outfield player of the season, and Louis van Gaal best coach.

An astonishing 71.2 percent of the 241 Bundesliga pros quizzed for the poll voted for Robben. By comparison, last year's winner Mesut Özil polled 38.1 percent, and the average winning score over the last decade stands at 44.2 percent. However, Robben's record in 2009-10 was way above average. In 24 Bundesliga appearances, he registered 23 scorer points (16 goals, 7 assists). Robben topped the survey by a vast margin from the league's top scorer and runner-up in the vote Edin Dzeko (6.7 percent). Bastian Schweinsteiger sealed a deserved third place on 5.4 percent.

Van Gaal from Gross and Magath

In the Best Coach category, Louis van Gaal recorded a clear-cut success of his own. After his first season in Germany, the Dutch supremo garnered 37.4 percent of the votes. Stuttgart boss Christian Gross (19.7 percent) and Schalke coach Felix Magath (17.2 percent) finished second and third.

Jörg Butt also achieved a highly creditable result. The 35-year-old came third on 10 percent in the Best Goalkeeper category. Only Manuel Neuer (30 percent) and René Adler (13.6 percent) scored higher.
