Bayern Munich's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski on Thursday was proclaimed FIFA Men's Player of the year, for the first time in his career.
FIFA took to Twitter to congratulate the Polish footballer on the title.
The international organization pointed out that the Bundesliga footballer, who is also the captain of the Poland national team, has "overcome two of the greatest players in history", in particular, Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Juventus's Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lewandowski's team, also took to Twitter to celebrate their striker's winning of the coveted FIFA award. The club shared a video showing the moment that FIFA President Gianni Infantino lifted the Best FIFA Men’s Player trophy and presented it to the 32-year-old player.
It seems that 2020, despite its tragedy, went well for the Polish footballer, winning the World Soccer Player of the Year, the Footballer of the Year in Germany, the FourFourTwo Player of the Year, and the Tuttosport 'Golden Player' at the Golden Boy Awards, along with other prizes.
Lewandowski joined Bayern in 2014, coming from Borussia Dortmund and achieving six Bundesliga, three DFB-Pokal, four DFL-Supercup, one UEFA Champions League and one UEFA Super Cup titles.
