The Polish striker netted 55 goals in 47 games in all competitions as Bayern won the treble.

Neuer, also part of Bayern`s treble-winning squad, kept six clean sheets in the Champions League and missed just one game the entire season.

Manchester City full-back Lucy Bronze, Chelsea striker Pernille Harder and Olympique Lyonnais defender Wendie Renard were short-listed for the women`s award.

Bayern`s Hans-Dieter Flick, Liverpool`s Juergen Klopp and RB Leipzig`s Julian Nagelsmann were nominated for the Men`s Coach of the Year award, while Barcelona`s Lluis Cortes, Wolfsburg`s Stephan Lerch and Lyon`s Jean-Luc Vasseur made the shortlist for the women`s award.
