The Bayern Munich men aren't the only players being named to the UEFA Best Player in Europe award shortlist. Bayern Munich Frauen are represented on the women's side by midfielder Lena Lotzen.
UEFA released an eleven player shortlist instead of ten, due to two players being tied in 10th place.
|Veronica Boquete||Portland Thorns (Tyresö)|
|Lena Lotzen||Bayern Munich|
|Christen Press||Chicago Red Stars (Tyresö)|
|Lotta Schelin||Olympique Lyonnais|
|Caroline Seger||Paris Saint-Germain (Tyresö)|
Here are the voting rules:
In the second round, the voting jury for the women's award will be composed of 12 journalists, each committed to supporting women's football and selected by ESM. The three final nominees are scheduled to be named on Thursday 14 August 2014.
The same jury will also cast their live votes in Monaco during a special ceremony on the occasion of the UEFA Champions League group stage draw, with the journalists using an electronic system to determine the outright winner from the three candidates.
Unfortunately, Lotzen is a likely on the outside looking in on the award this year due to the likelihood that this award is probably going to one of the players from Wolfsburg. They did win the UEFA Women's Champions League and the Frauen Bundesliga for the second year in a row.
New Bayern signing Melanie Behringer finished in a tie for twelfth place after her final season with FFC Frankfurt.
