Following the crowning of Robert Lewandowski as the 2020 Best Men’s Player on Thursday night, it has since been revealed how Kevin De Bruyne was voted for by some of his fellow professionals.
The Manchester City midfielder finished in fifth place for the top award of the evening, behind Sadio Mane, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski.
What has been perhaps more interesting is how some of the game’s most prominent players ranked De Bruyne in amongst their top three for the award:
Harry Kane: 2nd
Manuel Neuer: 2nd
Eden Hazard: 3rd
Riyad Mahrez: 3rd
Gareth Southgate: 3rd
Robert Lewandowski: 3rd
Kevin De Bruyne was however named in the FIFPro Men’s World XI of 2020 – an award which Pep Guardiola was quick to praise the Belgian star for, given how the team is voted for by fellow professionals from across the globe.
