The Ballon d’Or is one of the most prestigious individual awards that a footballer can get. The award is presented every season to the best player who shows the most impressive performance. Lionel Messi has won the most Ballon d’Ors. He has won a total of six Ballon d’Or. The next in the list is Cristiano Ronaldo with five golden balls. In fact, 11 of the last 12 awards have been won by Messi and Ronaldo and one of them was won by Luka Modric in 2018. However, this year that organizers of France Football canceled the award stating that it will be an unfair decision. Due to the pandemic, many scheduled matches got canceled and had to be rescheduled and hence in the month of July, it was decided that no player will be awarded the Golden Ball this year.
What does Lewandowski have to say about the Ballon d’Or?
Fans were very upset about this decision as everyone wants their favorite player to win. Many players had a great season this year but the player who caught everyone’s attention was the Polish superstar Robert Lewandowski. Recently, Lewandowski stated that he would want to gift himself the Ballon d’Or this year. He said that he thinks he was the best player this season. He said that he won each and every trophy he could possibly win this season. Along with that, he has the most goals in the Bundesliga as well as the UEFA Champions League. Surely, there are some players who played their best football this season like Neymar Jr., Lionel Messi as always, and Kylian Mbappe, but according to Lewandowski, they were not as good as him. Many fans agree with him because his form in this season was unbeatable.
Normally, only Messi or Ronaldo end up being the top scorers of Europe but this time they were behind 24 and 18 goals respectively. Lewandowski is very sure that if the award was not canceled this year, then he would have easily won it. Out of the 43 goals that Bayern scored this Champions League, 15 were scored by the Polish superstar himself. He also stated that every year he used to reach close to win the best player award but something was always missing. Now this year, even though he managed to fill that missing part, unfortunately, the award was canceled.
