Exceptional Robert Lewandowski has won the Best FIFA Men's Player award on Thursday night during a virtual ceremony.

 

The Polish and Bayern Munich striker, 32, who enjoyed an historic treble-winning season with his club, winning the Champions League, the Bundesliga, and the German Cup in 2020, broke up Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's dominance to scoop the award. 

 

He also scored 55 goals in just 47 games last season and finished as the top scorer in the league, cup, and Champions League

 

FIFA president Gianni Infantino showed personally to hand over the award, which recognised achievements between July 2019 and October 2020, to the Poland striker. 

In his acceptance speech, Lewandowski said: '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.'


Meanwhile, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has been named the men's coach of the year at the FIFA Best Football Awards.


The 53-year-old German became the first to win the award twice, beating Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and Bayern Munich's treble-winning manager Hans-Dieter Flick.


Klopp first won the award last year following the Reds' Champions League triumph. He was presented with the award again after ending Liverpool's 30-year wait for a Premier League title.

 

In his acceptance speech, Klopp gave credit to his coaching team, saying: 'I have to thank these boys. What we did in the last few years was really special.'

 

On the Premier League title, the German added: 'I had no idea how it would feel and it felt absolutely overwhelming.

'I have so many people to thank and most of all my coaches. If I had known we'd won it my coaches would be here with me. What we did in the last year is all about these boys.

 

'We didn't dream 30 years but we dream already for a few years. 


'It was absolutely exceptional and we all had a special year in an unfortunately not so positive way but for Liverpool fans at least we could make some highlights in a tricky period. I had no idea how it would feel and it felt absolutely overwhelming.'
