Robert Lewandowski has been named The Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year for 2020, with the Bayern Munich star beating Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the coveted prize.
The Poland striker scored 55 goals in just 47 games last season as he helped German giants Bayern to a treble.
Lewandowski, 32, finished as the top scorer in the league, cup and Champions League.
This is the first time Lewandowski has won the award, with Barcelona forward Messi or Juventus’ Ronaldo usually triumphing.
This season, Lewandowski has picked up from where left off with 16 goals in 14 games for Bayern.
“If you win such an award and share that title with Messi and Ronaldo, that is unbelievable and it means so much to me,” Lewandowski said.
“A long time ago, I remember I was longing for something like this and now I can win such and award. This really means, regardless of where you come form, all that matters is what you put into it.”
