Get one-third of the votes: Mesut Özil

Fans left little doubt, about their favorite player in 2012: Mesut Özil finished first in a vote on Germany’s best player last year. The Real Madrid midfielder thus defended his title from 2011, when he also led the field in a vote by the 'Fan Club Nationalmannschaft powered by Coca-Cola'. Özil drew 32.49 percent of the overall vote, Miroslav Klose coming in second with 13.89 % and Marco Reus finishing third with 13.1 %.

It is neither coincidence nor a sign of strict fan allegiance that Mesut Özil ranked on top. He played in 13 of 14 international games for Germany – only Thomas Müller and Miroslav Klose matched this output. With 1,089 minutes played, Mesut Özil was ahead of everybody. His six goals scored in 2012 also were unmatched. With an additional six assists, he was also the team's top scorer.

Two members of the 'Fan Club Nationalmannschaft powered by Coca-Cola' will present Özil with the award at the World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan in Nuremberg on March 26. Overall, 19,505 votes were cast.
