35. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
Overshadowed at times by Raul as the Spaniard enjoyed a surprising renaissance for Schalke last season, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar quietly and assuredly got about his business making minimal fuss about the lack of attention granted to his goalscoring exploits. Huntelaar was top goalscorer in the Bundesliga last season scoring 29 goals as his side finished third behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, becoming the first Dutchman to achieve the award playing in the Bundesliga. His 14 goals in the Europa League, in just 12 matches, meant his record in all competitions was a staggering 47 goals in just 48 appearances, averaging just under a goal every game.Moment of the Season - The Dutchman's second strike against Hamburg in October was a finish of real beauty as he nipped in front of a defender before flicking the ball with the outside of his foot past the despairing goalkeeper to give Schalke a 2-1 lead.
Editor's view - "Scoring 49 goals in 56 games is superb, nobody can deny that. However, this still was not good enough for the forward to earn a starting spot for Netherlands at Euro 2012. It was a real shame as 'the Hunter' is one of the best goalscorers worldwide for me." - Andreas Becker - Deputy editor of Goal.com Germany
