Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski: “I deserved to win the Ballon d’Or”

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says his Europe-leading 55-goal spree would have been worthy of breaking the Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo duopoly on the Ballon d’Or, had the 2020 award not been cancelled.

Lewandowski was in a league of his own in 2019/20, finishing the season as top scorer in the Bundesliga (34), DFB Cup (six) and UEFA Champions League (15) as Bayern claimed their second continental treble.

As a reference point, Messi and Ronaldo – who have won 11 of the last 12 Ballon d’Or prizes – scored 31 and 37 times respectively.

The 32-year-old was the clear favourite to be named the world’s best player, before organisers France Football confirmed in July that the trophy would not be awarded due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
