Although missed out the Ballon d’Or in November, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has won the FIFA Best Men’s Player for the second year running. He has already won the award in 2020.
In December, the 33-year-old Poland international scored his 43rd goal, setting new record for most Bundesliga goals in a calendar year and breaking the record set by Gerd Muller in 1972. He became the first player in Bundesliga history to finish top scorer in four consecutive seasons.
Who has the most FIFA Best Player awards?
The Best FIFA Men’s Player is an award presented annually by FIFA to the world’s best men’s player since 2016, formerly known as the FIFA World Player of the Year. The measurements of this award are based on the winner for their respective achievements during the period from 8 October 2020 to 7 August 2021.
Manchester United Cristiano Ronaldo was ever the player who had the most honors. He won the The Best players in 2016 and 2017 when playing for Real Madrid. Lewandowski and CR7 are the only two players having won the prize two times in row. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi has only one.
