Schweinsteiger named Player of the Season

Postby FCBayernNews » Sun Jul 28, 2013 3:30 pm

Treble winners Bayern have swept the board in the annual German Player of the Season awards, with Bastian Schweinsteiger, Franck Ribéry and Thomas Müller taking the top three spots in the 54th edition of the long-running poll conducted by kicker magazine. In the vote for coach of the season, Jupp Heynckes was the undisputed and runaway winner.

It is the first time Schweinsteiger has been named German Player of the Season. The Bayern vice-captain received 92 of the 527 votes cast by accredited sports journalists. Schweinsteiger is the 19th FCB player to win the award: Franz Beckenbauer is the most successful winner in the accolade's history with four triumphs.

Nine Bayern FCB men in the top 15

Behind Schweinsteiger, it was a close-run thing for second spot between Ribéry (87 votes) and Müller (85). Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski was the first non-Munich man in fourth, with previous season's winner Marco Reus in 11th. Of the top 15 players in the list, nine came from Bayern and five from BVB, with only sixth-placed Stefan Kießling of Leverkusen breaking the duopoly.

In an interview to be published by kicker on Monday, Schweinsteiger emphasised that the award was entirely a product of FCB's stunning achievements as a club in 2012/13, "so it's also a trophy for the team."

Emphatic victory for Heynckes

In the poll for Coach of the Season, 383 of the 517 votes cast were for Schweinsteiger's ex-boss Heynckes. The 68-year-old, who retired at the end of the hugely successful campaign, described the treble triumph as "a wonderful end to my long career." He was delighted with the accolade bestowed by the sports writers: "This award provides the fairytale ending. Dreams have become reality."

In the poll, Heynckes was followed home by Freiburg's Christian Streich (77 votes) and Dortmund's Jürgen Klopp, winner in the last two years but a distant third this time on 19 votes.

Women's award for Martina Müller

The title of Women's Player of the Season also went to a treble-winner, after Martina Müller of VfL Wolfsburg took 117 of the 418 votes cast, beating Celia Okoyino da Mbabi (70 votes) into second place. Müller called time on her international career last November after earning 101 caps for Germany, but converted a penalty to hand Wolfsburg a shock triumph over Olympique Lyon in last season's Women's Champions League final.

Congrats Bastian, Heynckes and all Bayern players in the top 15. :D


Will this in any way affect Ribery's chances in winning a Ballon D'or? idk why I think it would -_-

Basti wouldn't be too far behind in the Ballon d'Or race. I'll be fine with it as long as one of them wins it.

None of them will. A 3rd place at most.

I'm realistic about their chances too. Maybe UEFA Player of the Year would be between these too.
Ballon d'Or, we'll have to wait and see if captains and coaches recognised our strength.
Waiting to see who Lahm votes for. Poor guy would be in such a dilemma how to rank among Schweini, Ribery and Mueller. :)
Knowing how humble he is, he won't name his name of course unlike some players. cough CR cough.
