Who Should Win The UEFA Men's Player of the Year?

UEFA have shortlisted three players for this year’s UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.

Kevin De Bruyne

Europe’s leading assist provider, laying on a record-equalling 20 assists and 13 goals in the Premier League.

Robert Lewandowski

Scored 55 goals in 47 games as Bayern won the treble, including a competition-leading 15 in the UEFA Champions League.

Manuel Neuer

6 clean sheets in the UEFA Champions league, helped Bayern win the treble and most successful goalkeeper of the season.


Robert Lewandowski

No second thoughts that Lewandowski deserves the Men’s POTY award. The Poland striker scored in every game en route to the UEFA Champions League final in Lisbon, picking up 15 goals and six assists as well as trophy he has coveted for so long.

2019/20 achievements for RL9

Achievements : UEFA Champions League winner, Bundesliga winner, German Cup winner, UEFA Champions League top scorer, UEFA Champions League top assist provider, Bundesliga top scorer, Bundesliga Player of the Season.

  • Was top scorer in all three of the competitions that Bayern won in 2019/20, hitting 34 goals in 31 Bundesliga matches, six in five German Cup games and 15 in his ten UEFA Champions League fixtures.

  • Fastest quadruple in Champions League history. Scored four times in the space of 16 minutes.

  • Highest Goal Scorer in all competitions this season.


Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian footballer who plays for the English club Manchester City.

In the Premier League he had almost 100 shots out of which 31 were on target with a shooting accuracy of 31%. He has played a crucial role for Manchester City up until now.

He has given 20 assists in just 35 appearances last season and has over 1900 passes in total. He had a passing accuracy of 55%. He has also given over 300 crosses with a crossing accuracy of 25%. Of all the long balls he has given over 120 were accurate.

IT does not end here. He can also gain possession easily with a tackle success rate of over 50%. He has also recovered the ball over 135 times.

In total he has scored 16 goals and has given 23 assists last season.

He also has a huge collection of trophies and awards. He has won the Premier League twice, FA Cup, English League Cup 4 time and an English Super Cup. He also recently won the Premier League Player of the Season.

In my opinion he is more than exceptional and definitely will be a fierce competitor for the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award.

Bayern Munich have had a near-perfect year.

Bayern Munich have lifted the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup last season. Winning the treble is no mean feat!

De Bruyne, Lewandowski & Neuer - All exceptional and deserving candidates! It will be really difficult to pick one over the other. Having said that, Lewandowski has had a stupendous season coupled with the historic treble win and I think is most likely to win the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award.

Lewandowski or Neuer and Coach Hansi Flick - We are likely to see a clean sweep win for Bayern!

The awards will be announced and presented at the men’s Champions League groups draw on Oct. 1 at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
