Nyon [Switzerland], September 23 (ANI): Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne, Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski, and Manuel Neuer were on Wednesday shortlisted for the 2019-20 UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award.
UEFA has announced the names of the nominees shortlisted for both 2019-20 UEFA Men's and Women's Player of the Year Awards. The awards will be presented at the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League group stage draw ceremony, which will take place on Thursday, October 1.
For the men's player award, the shortlist of three players was selected by a jury composed of 80 coaches of the clubs which participated in the group stages of the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, together with 55 journalists from each of UEFA's 55 member associations, selected by the European Sports Media (ESM) group.

Twenty journalists specialising in women's football and selected by the ESM group were also part of the jury.
