Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski voted Bundesliga's top outfield player
Bayern Munich attacker Robert Lewandowski has been voted best outfield player this season by his fellow Bundesliga players.
Lewandowski scored 30 goals in 33 appearances (31 starts) for Bayern and 25 percent of the 248 Bundesliga players voting in kicker's poll rated him the best outfield performer over the course of the season -- ahead of RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.
Lewandowski, 28, secured his third straight Bundesliga title this season (2015, 2016, 2017), adding to successive title wins under Jurgen Klopp at former club Borussia Dortmund in 2011 and 2012.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Dortmund could only finish third, despite being voted the best performer during the first half of the season and outscoring Lewandowski 31-30 to win Kicker's prestigious Torjagerkanone for finishing Bundesliga top scorer, aided by two goals on the final day of the season, while Lewandowski drew a blank against Freiburg.
Despite missing the last month of the season through injury, Manuel Neuer won best goalkeeper for the fifth year in succession, while Hoffenheim's Julian Nagelsmann, 29, was voted the best Bundesliga coach.
