Bayern Munich’s mainstay striker, Robert Lewandowski performed brilliantly this season, he was said to have a great chance to win the Ballon d’Or title. But interestingly, the Polish National Team players were not interested in the award.
Lewandowski himself actually never penetrated the top three Ballon candidates of Orr. So far, the best achievement is finishing fourth in 2015 ago. But many believe that this year the Polish players have the opportunity to win the award.
Not surprisingly, Lewandowski did appear sharp by scoring 45 goals in all competitions for Bayern Munich. With this contribution, Bayern have just one more victory to lock the German Bundesliga title this season.
In addition, Hansi Flick’s troops also still have a chance to win the DFB Pokal and European Champions League titles. Well, if successfully delivering Bayern won all the trophies, it is not impossible that Lewandowski will be the winner of the Ballon d’Or.
It’s just that the player is not interested in the Ballon d’Or award because he thinks the collective title is more important.
“I attended the award ceremony last December. Let’s wait and see. What I try to do is always show my best, win trophies and score more goals.
But it is something that comes with a collective trophy. That’s the most important thing. I don’t even think about Ballon d’Or, even though in my life, I believe that anything is still possible,” Lewandowski said to France Football.
Robert Lewandowski’s words seem to contrast with his words a few years ago, where the striker claimed he yearned for the annual title.
Unfortunately, in recent years this award has only been dominated by two players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. In fact, this season the two players performed brilliantly this season with their respective clubs.
Cristiano Ronaldo has so far won five Ballon d’Or trophies, while Lionel Messi himself has won the same 6 titles. Both are also still equally likely to end the season with league titles and European Champions league.
