The Eintracht Frankfurt forward netted 19 times in just 26 appearances, making him a worthy winner of the award.
The 32-year-old underlined once again in 2014/15 what a sharp eye for goal he has. He was used only as a substitute in two of Frankfurt's first three games of the season, with many questioning whether Thomas Schaaf's system suited the striker, but after opening his account against FC Schalke 04 on Matchday 4, he became one of the first names on the team sheet.
Meier took over the captaincy on Matchday 6, but after netting five goals in just three games in late-February/early-March, his season was curtailed by a knee injury, forcing him to undergo surgery. However, Meier, who maintained throughout the campaign that "an FC Bayern player will win it" [the top scorer's award], had already done enough to hold off the challenge of Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben, as well as VfL Wolfsburg's Bas Dost.
The prolific forward lifted the coveted Torjägerkanone following Frankfurt's final game of the season, a 2-1 win over Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
