Robert Lewandoski has won the Best Fifa men’s player award for the second year in a row at a ceremony in Zurich on Monday evening.
He won ahead of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Paris St-Germain forward Lionel Messi. Lewandoski broke two Bundesliga records by scoring 41 goals for Bayern in its title-winning 2020-21 season and 43 in the calendar year of 2021.
The 33-year-old broke Gerd Muller’s 40 goal record in Germany’s top flight, a record that was regarded untouchable.
Lewandoski also became the first player in Bundesliga history to finish as a top scorer in four consecutive seasons.
In the current campaign, Lewandoski has already scored 34 goals in 27 competitive games for Bayern, including a hat trick against cologne during the weekend.
