Furious fans believe that Robert Lewandowski has been 'cheated' out of the Bundesliga Player of the Year award after Erling Haaland won the fan vote.

The 32-year-old Polish striker enjoyed a scintillating season as Bayern Munich were crowned champions of Germany.

The Bayern star scored an incredible 41 times and registered seven assists in Bundesliga 29 appearances.

Lewandowski's overall goalscoring tally for the season came in at 48 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions.

However, the Poland captain fell short of Haaland in the fan-voted Bundesliga Player of the Year award.

Haaland has also thrived for Borussia Dortmund this season as he scored an impressive 27 times and picked up eight assists in 28 Bundesliga appearances this season.

The 20-year-old Norwegian striker scooped the Player of the Year award and said it was an "honour" to be awarded the accolade.

Haaland tweeted: "An honour to be awarded with the @Bundesliga_DE Player of the Season!

"An achievement not just for me but for the whole @BVB family. We won this award together!"

But fans have staunchly argued that Lewandowski has been 'robbed' of the award after shattering Muller's longstanding record.

"Unreal season from Haaland, but [Lewandowski] surely robbed here," one fan said.

Another Twitter user wrote: "Lewandowski was top scorer, won the league, broke a 50-year-old goal record despite being injured for a month. How did he not win?"

Someone else tweeted: "Lewandowski broke the goalscoring record and won the league this season. Lewandowski [was] robbed."

And a fourth added: "Not to take anything away from his [Haaland] greatness, I just have an honest question as to how Lewandowski didn't bag this award?"

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hailed Lewandowski's impact this season and claimed the former Dortmund striker is "currently better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi."
