Bayern Munich added a major double to their famous treble as striker Robert Lewandowski and head coach Hansi Flick were honoured with UEFA’s top individual awards on Thursday.
Lewandowski scored 55 goals last season, including 15 in the Champions League, and he collected the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year prize, while Flick was presented with the Men’s Coach of the Year honour.
Last season saw Bayern sweep the board with their Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League triumphs to seal a stunning treble.
Former Germany assistant boss Flick took charge at Bayern in November after the team experienced a slow start to the season under predecessor Niko Kovac, and their results began to dramatically improve.
The German giants have already scooped UEFA Super Cup and DFL-Supercup victories in the early weeks of the new season, meaning they hold five significant trophies.
Lewandowski, who fended off competition from fellow nominees Manuel Neuer and Kevin De Bruyne, said of his award: “I have to say it’s an amazing feeling.
“If you work so hard and you get this trophy it’s something special.”
