Bayern goal-getter Robert Lewandowski has been recognized as Germany's 'Footballer of the Year' for 2021.
In a poll of sports journalists conducted by sports magazine kicker, Lewandowski received 356 votes, placing him far ahead of teammates Thomas Müller (41) and Joshua Kimmich (25) as well as Dortmund's Erling Haaland (38).
It's the second year in a row in which Lewandowski has won the award.
"I know what a great honour this is," said the Pole, who broke Gerd Müller's long-standing record with 41 goals in the Bundesliga last season.
"It's a source of great pride and joy for me, because it's rare for someone to win the title of Footballer of the Year in Germany twice in a row."
