Lewandowski beats Messi and Ronaldo to Fifa Best Player Award
Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski was named The Best Fifa Men’s Player 2020 yesterday, beating off competition from last year’s winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lewandowski, who won the German league and cup double as well as the Champions League with Bayern, finished as top scorer in all three competitions and won the award for the first time.
The 32-year-old also led Poland to Euro 2020 qualification and was named the 2019-20 UEFA Men’s Player of the Year in October.
“To win such an award and share this title with (previous winners) Messi and Ronaldo, is unbelievable and means so much to me,” Lewandowski said.
