Lewandowski named Poland's Player of the Year

Munich - FC Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski has been named Poland’s Player of the Year for a fourth successive time.

Prolific marksman

The 26-year-old, who joined the record titleholders from top-flight rivals Borussia Dortmund last summer, received 60 per cent of vote, which is conducted by the Polish players’ union PZP. “This is a great honour and makes me very, very proud,” said Lewandowski after receiving the award. “Thank you to everyone who voted for me.”

The Poland international striker has enjoyed a solid - if not spectacular - debut season at the Allianz Arena, scoring ten goals in 27 appearances in all competitions to help the Bavarians establish an eight-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga and sail into the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. Last season’s


winner was first voted Poland’s best player in 2011 on the back of his first full season in Dortmund colours. Since then, Lewandowski has established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in world football, having bagged 81 goals in 149 Bundesliga appearances for both BVB and FC Bayern. Lewandowski has also netted 23 goals in 66 international appearances after making his debut as a 20-year-old in September 2008.
