Robert Lewandowski Bayern Munich 2019-20

Robert Lewandowski was named UEFA's Men's Player of the Year on Thursday as Champions League winners Bayern Munich dominated the men's awards.

Pernille Harder, who recently joined Chelsea, was named UEFA Women's Player of the Year for her performances at Wolfsburg. The German side were beaten in the Champions League final by Lyon but Harder beat Lyon pair Wendie Renard and Lucy Bronze to the individual award.

Bayern captainNeuer was unsurprisingly named Goalkeeper of theSeason, beating PSG’s Keylor Navas and Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid. Neuer played every minute of Bayern’s European campaign, keeping six clean sheets and conceding only eight goals in 11 games.

Lyon’s SarahBouhaddi won the inaugural women’s award, conceding just twice in seven appearances as she won her seventh Women’s Champions League.

Ahead of Neuer, Bayern's defensive quality was clear as their trio of Kimmich, David Alaba and Alphonso Davies made up the final shortlist, Kimmich coming out on top of the voting.

Bouhaddi was also joined by a Lyon defensive partner, with France starRenard named the women's Defender of the Season as she also lifted the Champions League for the seventh time.

Manchester City's European campaign finished in disappointment once again butDe Bruyne was named Midfielder of the Season ahead of Thiago and Thomas Muller, while another Lyon star in Germany internationalMarozsan won the women's award.

Lewandowski was named Forward of the Season, top scorer in the Champions League as in every other competition he played in 2019-20. Harder backed up her overall award with the Forward of the Season gong as well, scoring nine goals on the way to the final.

Bayern boss Flick's remarkable rise to prominence over the last year was recognised as he was named Men's Coach of the Year after masterminding his team's treble.

Lyon's dominance of Europe was further confirmed as their manager, Jean-Luc Vasseur, won the firstWomen's Coach of the Year award.
