“We won everything that was possible to win with Bayern. I have been the top scorer in all the competitions we have participated in: the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League. I think a player who accomplished this would win the Golden Ball. “
End of August, in an interview with Polish media Sports Facts, Robert Lewandowski explained that he would have deserved to win the Golden Ball this year. An opinion shared by Leonardo Bonucci.
“He is the best striker in the world”
On the eve of the match between Poland and Italy, counting for the third day of the League of Nations, the defender of Juventus and Squadra Azzura was very laudatory towards Lewandowski. “If the Golden Ball had been awarded he would have won it. He is now the best striker in the world. We will have to do a lot of work to stop him. It will be a good battle because we want to come back in Italy with the three points “, he explained this Saturday at a press conference in remarks reported by the newspaper Tuttosport.
The most prestigious individual award in the world of football, the Ballon d’Or will not be awarded in 2020. This decision was taken in July by the weekly France Football, “for lack of sufficient fair conditions” due to the epidemic of coronavirus which turned the competitions upside down.
Lionel Messi and Megan Rapinoe, crowned in 2019, will therefore have no successors this year. A blow for Lewandowski, who was considered the favorite after winning everything with his club and scoring 55 goals in 47 games in all competitions.
