Striker Robert Lewandowski named Poland's Player of the Year again

Robert Lewandowski has been named Poland's Player of the Year -- the fourth year in succession that the Bayern Munich striker has landed the award.

Poland captain Lewandowski, who moved to German champions Bayern from Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer in the summer, was handed the award at a ceremony in the Polish capital Warsaw.

Bayern's official Twitter page quoted the 26-year-old striker as saying: "This is a great honour and I'm very, very proud. Thanks to everyone."

Last month, Lewandowski told German newspaper Sport Bild that he would advise former ex-Dortmund colleague Marco Reus to join him at Bayern if he decided to move on.

This summer could see Reus move to Munich from the club that beat them to the Bundesliga tittle in 2011 and 2012. The 25-year-old attacker can trigger a reported 25 million-euro release clause in his Dortmund contract, which runs until 2017.

"Should he ask me [about Bayern], I will tell that I have done everything right with opting for Bayern and against Real Madrid," Lewandowski -- who had also been a target for the Spanish club -- told Sport Bild.

"But I won't tell Marco: 'You have to join Bayern.' In the end, it's his decision."
