Kicker magazine polled 241 Bundesliga players and 30.9 per cent of them voted the Cologne striker as the season's biggest disappointment, as he scored only two goals after returning to the club from Bayern Munich last summer.

Bayern Munich duo Miroslav Klose (18.7 per cent) and Mario Gomez (29.0 per cent) were next in the voting, while relegated Hearth Berlin (74.1 per cent) were overwhelmingly voted the team flop of the season.

On a more positive note, the players voted Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller as the newcomer of the season and Mainz as the surprise team of the year.
