Manchester City's Belgian attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski as Bayern's striker, and his team-mate, goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer are claiming the title.
Kevin De Bruyne gave 20 assists in the Premier League last season and thus beat Thierry Henry's record in 2002/03. Robert Lewandowski, playing for Bayern, has scored 55 goals in 47 matches in all competitions and scored a golden hat-trick with the club. Manuel Neuer only once did not play in the Bundesliga last season, and in the Champions League he played all the matches, and six of them – zero.
Earlier, Mikhail Efremov said that he continues to be an active football fan even in jail.
