Bayern Munich star, Lewandowski, has bagged best FIFA Football Awards. The star player won the trophy ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as a result of his outstanding performance.

According to his team-mate ,Thomas Mueller, he deserves the award. Also commenting is the head coach of Bayern Munich, Hansi Flick, he said;

“If you look at what he’s achieved, you have to consider it,” said Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick when asked about his forward’s case for the Ballon d’Or following Bayern’s DFB Cup final win over Leverkusen. “Why shouldn’t it be someone from the Bundesliga? He fulfils all the requirements.”

Since its foundation in 2016, The Best FIFA Men’s Player award has been won by Ronaldo twice; Messi and Luka Modric once each. All have been players for whom individual achievement goes hand-in-hand with club success. The way 2019/20 played out, you would be hard pushed to find a better candidate than Lewandowski.

Given he’s the Bundesliga’s all-time leading foreign-born goal scorer, and has been finding the net with incredible regularity since arriving in Germany in 2010 – once every 109 Bundesliga minutes over the last decade – fans could be forgiven for thinking they had already witnessed peak Lewandowski.

But Bayern’s prolific Pole has just enjoyed his best-ever Bundesliga season – plundering a record 34 goals to win his fifth Torjägerkanone – fuelling his club’s path to an eighth successive league title, and he netted twice to help them lift the DFB Cup.

His six goals in that competition made him the leading scorer, and he also hit 15 on Bayern’s march to UEFA Champions League success – a competition best. That means he scored 55 goals in just 47 competitive games in 2019/20, a breathtaking feat no-one else in Europe’s top five leagues can boast. And how about this for a stat? He is the first player ever to win a continental treble while also being the top scorer in each competition.
