Lewandowski: I can think of winning Ballon d’Or

Bayern Munich and the national team of Poland forward Robert Lewandowski shared his thoughts on the future Ballon d’Or vote.

Last year, France Football magazine did not host the Ballon d'Or ceremony. This was the moment when Robert Lewandowski was the closest to the award of all the contenders, and the Munich club won the treble in the 2019/20 season.

But now the bookmakers and analysts consider Lionel Messi to be the clear favorite for the trophy, who finally took the first important trophy with the Argentina national team. At the same time, Lewandowski feels injustice towards himself and hopes for a correct assessment of his performances over the past two years,

“I understand that every good performance, in the national team or at the club, strengthens my position in this vote. I have won many awards in the last two seasons and I think I showed that I can think about winning the Ballon d'Or.

This will certainly be a tremendous honor and achievement. I am proud and happy to be on the list of contenders. I hope that politics will not interfere and the voting will be based on the performances of the players on the pitch,” Bayern & Germany quotes Lewandowski.

It is not entirely clear whether the voters will take into account Robert's achievements over the past season. The scorer not so long ago took his well-deserved Golden Boot, and this may be enough for the experts, because the striker did not have it well in the Poland national team. The last place in the group and three goals did not bring any dividends to the team.

Compared to him, Messi really looks more solid, like N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, who won the Champions League, and the latter also won the European Championship. We would be very upset if Robert's best season goes unnoticed in terms of the maximum individual reward for a football player due to France Football's decision not to identify the strongest in the coronavirus season. He, like no one else in recent years, deserves this trophy.
