Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has been voted Bundesliga Player of the Year by his fellow professionals, while teammate Manuel Neuer was named the league’s best goalkeeper, according to Kicker magazine’s bi-annual poll of 228 German top-flight players. Ribery claimed the award after receiving 29 percent of the vote, ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski, with 17.3 percent, and teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger, 12.4 percent. The Frenchman finished the season with 10 goals and 15 assists in 34 games.

In the goalkeeper award, Neuer finished just ahead of Dortmund’s Roman Weidenfeller, receiving 23.2 percent of the vote, while Hamburg’s Rene Adler finished third.

Meanwhile, coach of the year went overwhelmingly to Freiburg’s Christian Streich, who received 48.7 percent of the vote. He was followed by Bayern’s Jupp Heynckes and Frankfurt’s Armin Veh.
