The Germany goalkeeper finished third, behind forward duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Lewandowski, who was given a vote as he captains Poland, chose eventual winner Ronaldo as his number one player of the year, followed by Neuer and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

However, he revealed he would make a different decision if given the chance now.

"It was a mistake on my part to have chosen Ronaldo," he said on

"I would clearly choose Neuer today if I had the chance but I voted sometime in August. Today I would choose differently. I'm very sorry for Manu."
