Franck Ribery has won the German Bundesliga’s Player of the Season award.
French international Ribery was in blistering form for Treble winners Bayern Munich all season long, and justifiably deserves his recognition.
His club-mate, Manuel Neuer, was voted Best Goalkeeper of the Season.
The Bayern duo was elected by their peers in a secret ballot run by kicker magazine.
Ribery claimed 29% of the vote, ahead of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski (17.3%) and his Bayern team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger (12.4%).
Ribery scored 10 league goals and registered 15 assists, and along with fellow winger, Arjen Robben, added tireless back-tracking hustle to his game, under tough task master Jupp Heynckes.
As a result of his stellar season, last week Ribery was also rewarded by Bayern with a contract extension.
