Lionel Messi: Robert Lewandowski deserved Ballon d'Or

Argentine and Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi, who won the Ballon d’Or for the seventh time, claims Bayern Munich and Polish forward Robert Lewandowski really deserved the prize. On Monday, at a ceremony in Paris held at Paris’s Theatre du Chatelet Messi was awarded the Ballon d’Or for the seventh time. Lewandowski collected 33 points fewer than Messi, and he came in in second place for this year’s Ballon d’Or. 

Lionel Messi believes Robert Lewandowski should have been given last year’s award which was cancelled due to a global pandemic caused by coronavirus. Former Barcelona star admitted that he had stiff competition from Lewandowski and it was an honour for him to be competing with the Polish striker.

Messi said as quoted by, “I would like to mention Robert Lewandowski, it’s been a real honour to compete with you. Everyone knows and we agree that you were the winner last year. I think France Football should award you your 2020 Ballon d’Or – you deserve it and you should have it at home,” he added. Lewandowski was viewed as the favourite to win the Ballon d’Or in 2020 because of his goal-scoring exploits. But the award was cancelled that year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

“I think Robert Lewandowski had a great year. Year after year, he improves and shows the excellent striker he is, as well as his ability to score goals. This year he was awarded as the top scorer. Of course, he can certainly aspire to that level next year, thanks to his way of being on the pitch. And in addition, he plays for a big club,” he added.
