Robert Lewandowski is The Best

Robert Lewandowski has been named The Best men's player of 2020 at FIFA's award ceremony.

The Bayern Munich striker took the award ahead of fellow nominees Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The Polish international's goals fired Bayern to a remarkable treble of Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League in 2019/10.

"I feel fantastic," Lewandowski said. "I am very proud and happy to be honest this is a great day for me, and also for my club and colleagues.

"This award also belongs to my colleagues, the coach and Bayern Munich in general. It is an incredible feeling, a lot of emotions.

"If you win such an award and share that title with Messi and Ronaldo, that is unbelievable and it means so much to me. A long time ago, I remember I was longing for something like this and now I can win such and award. This really means, regardless of where you come form, all that matters is what you put into it.

"For the entire world this year was difficult, the greatest highlight was winning the Champions League final - such a special day and evening, that was an incredible feeling. That was a great moment.

"Then we won the cup and got every title we could possibly win. We have a great coach, great team and we all work towards one goal."

Lewandowski inherits the award from Messi, who was crowned winner in 2019.
