Bayern Munich and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski have been crowned 2019/20 UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.
His effort in the season under review has been recognised as he has been named European Football of the Year for 2019-20 by UEFA.
The striker beat off competition from Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City and club teammate Manuel Neuer
Lewandowski helped Bayern to win the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and Champions League, with the hitman the leading scorer in each of those competitions.
At 32 years of age, the experienced goal-getter enjoyed the most productive season of his career to date. In 47 appearances for Bayern, Lewandowski found the target on 55 occasions.
His contribution was expected to make him a leading contender for the Ballon d’Or, but the awarding of that gong has been scrapped by France Football amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
