Each of the following players made key contributions to their respective clubs in the league. Here are the top 10 best Bundesliga players of 2022:

Patrik Schick

Patrik Schick was sensational for Bayer Leverkusen last season and finished the campaign with 24 goals with five assists. The forward has two goals in 11 appearances of the 2022/23 season. Having said that, the year 2022 as a whole has been fruitful for the striker.

Erling Haaland

Josko Gvardiol

Josko Gvardiol had a brilliant year. It was in 2022 when he truly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in European football.
