Bayern Munich goalkeeper has been voted Germany’s Player of the Year of 2020 by fans of the German national team.

The 34-year-old was a clear winner with 57.8 percent of fans voting for him. Serge Gnabry followed in second place with 15 percent, while Matthias Ginter finished third with 9.3 percent of the votes.

Neuer had a splendid last season and was one of the most consistent players in Joachim Low’s DFB setup.

With Bayern, Neuer lifted the Bundesliga title, Champions League, DFB-Pokal, National, and European Supercup.

Neuer was also named FIFA’s Best Men’s Goalkeeper of the Year in December, beating Liverpool’s Alisson Becker and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.

Last week, Gnabry won the award for the National Team Goal of the Year for his brilliant strike in the 3-3 draw against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League.
