It caused a lot of commotion afterwards: not Robert Lewandowski, but Lionel Messi was awarded the Golden Ball for the football year 2021 by the professional jury of France Football. In the aftermath of the election, the Pole may still get a Golden Ball. The one from 2020.

At the time, everyone was in agreement: Lewandowski should win the Golden Ball. Only, precisely in the ‘first corona year’, the organization decided not to hold the election. In the year in which the Bayern Munich striker scored continuously and managed to grab every club prize with the Bavarian club.

Then he just had to win it in 2021. However? So no. Messi took off with his seventh Golden Ball, partly due to Argentina’s Copa America win. During his speech, the Argentine dribbler also realized that his competitor from Poland had excellent years. “You deserved the trophy last year. I hope France Football still hands it out to you. You deserve it,” he yelled at Lewandowski.

Editor-in-chief Pascal Ferré did not let that be said twice. “What Messi said was nice and smart. We can think about it. At the same time, we must also respect the Ballon d’Or’s history, which is based on elections,” he told German medium Watson.
