Ribery named Bundesliga Player of the Year

The former Olympique de Marseille attacker has added yet another individual award to his resume following an impressive 2013.

Bayern Munich attacker Franck Ribery has been named the 2013 Bundesliga Player of the Year following his fine performances in the past 12 months.

The France international, who is also on the short list for the FIFA Ballon d'Or with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, adds the title to the Champions League Best Player and UEFA Best Player in Europe awards he won earlier in the year.

The 30-year-old came out on top in a poll of the 36 captains from the top two tiers of German football.

Ribery claimed the crown ahead of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, who continues to be heavily linked with a summer switch to the Allianz Arena.

Since the turn of the year, Ribery has recorded 18 goals and 20 assists in 44 appearances in all competitions, winning the Champions League, Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Super Cup in that time.

With Bayern through to the final of the Club World Cup, Ribery could add even more silverware to his trophy cabinet in Morocco on Saturday should Pep Guardiola's men defeat Raja Casablanca.
