Lewandowski was at Uefa headquarters in Nyon in Switzerland to receive the award
Robert Lewandowski was named Uefa Men's Player of the Year on Thursday following a superb season in which he won the treble with Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski was at Uefa headquarters in Nyon in Switzerland to receive the award at the draw for the Champions League group stage, just weeks after Bayern won the 2019/20 edition of the competition.
The Poland striker scored 55 goals in 47 games as Bayern also won he Bundesliga and German Cup. He was top scorer in the Champions League with 15 goals.
Meanwhile, Danish forward Pernille Harder, who recently signed for Chelsea, was named the Uefa women's player of the year at a ceremony on Thursday on the sidelines of the men's Champions League draw.
Harder, 27, helped German club Wolfsburg to the final of the Champions League, where they lost to reigning champions Lyon.
"I am super happy and very, very proud," said Harder in a video message after being named the winner.
The prize perhaps carries greater weight this year because there will be no Ballon d'Or, organisers France Football cancelling that gala ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic.
