As is customary this time of year, kicker asked 239 Bundesliga players for their take on the season so far.
The German football magazine poll players twice per season – at the halfway stage and at its conclusion – to see how things have unfolded from the players’ perspectives.
This winter has seen them ask 239 Bundesliga stars a whole host of questions, and they came back with a definitive answer on the best player.
The end of last season had seen Kai Havertz voted the league’s best outfield player, while Marco Reus was selected this time last year.
But with 19 goals from 17 Bundesliga appearances so far this season, Lewandowski was always going to take home the accolade this time around.
Meanwhile, Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Yann Sommer was selected as the league’s best goalkeeper with 38.9% of the vote.
