Real Madrid ace Kroos beats Neuer to German Player of Year

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has been named Germany's Player of the Year.

Kroos has been named as best German player of 2014, taking over from Mesut √Ėzil, who held the title for the past three years.

The Real Madrid midfielder beat Miroslav Klose, who finished in second place and Manuel Neuer, who was third, in the popular vote.

Kroos picks up the award on the back of his performances leading Germany to the World Cup in Brazil, and being a key member of Pep Guardiola's Bayern, before becoming a vital player under Ancelotti at Real Madrid after his summer move.
