Player of the season

Rahul Asnani – Thomas Muller

Bayern is Müller. Despite not having his best season, the German still finished with the most assists with 25. While Lewandowski’s numbers are undeniable, the Bavarian side has found itself to be rudderless without Thomas Muller. His form directly correlates to the team’s success, highlighting his impact not only as an offensive mastermind but as an orchestrator on both sides of the pitch.

Isaac Rivers – Robert Lewandowski

Throughout the entirety of the season, I felt that Lewandowski was one of Bayern’s most consistent players. Raking in his second-highest goal tally of 35 goals, on top of the countless records he smashed, it’s only fair to say Lewandowski is Bayern’s player of the year.

Daniel Garza – Robert Lewandowski

It was another incredible season from Lewandowksi in terms of scoring goals. He scored 35 goals in the Bundesliga, which was also the best tally for any player in Europe’s top five leagues. He remained consistent throughout the 2021/22 campaign and played an instrumental role in Bayern’s tenth consecutive league title. There’s no question he was Bayern’s best player of the season.

Rituraj Deka – Robert Lewandowski

Undoubtedly, Lewandowski had another great season, with Die Roten scoring 50 goals across all competitions. Lewandowski contributed a lot to the Bayern team with his amazing performances and played a crucial role in Bayern’s consecutive 10th Bundesliga title.

Kiran Thakare – Thomas Muller

Robert Lewandowski may have taken all plaudits for last season, and rightly so, after scoring 40+ goals for the third season in a row. However, Thomas Muller was my pick for man of the match. The German forward continues to maintain an incredible consistency in the number ten role. He seamlessly adapted to Nagelsmann’s methods. Along with working hard off the ball, Muller was very productive in the final third. He ended the season with 13 goals and 25 assists across all competitions.
