The best of the best for the calendar year.
20. Marco Reus (Borussia Monchengladbach/Borussia Dortmund & Germany)
The young German agreed a move back to the Westfalenstadion in January but didn’t let that affect his form at Monchengladbach, where he scored and provided assists with abandon.
The 23 year old then continued that fine form at Borussia Dortmund and became indispensable to Joachim Low at international level, a player with a bright future, an adaptable attacking talent who has had a marvelous 2012.
