Ballon d’Or organizers have said they are thinking about awarding Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski the 2020 Ballon d’ Or award following comments from Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi..
Messi, who won a seventh Ballon d’Or on Monday night, had urged France Football to award Lewandowski, who finished runner-up behind the Argentine this year, an award for last year.
Edujandon.com reports that the Ballon d’ Or was not handed out last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lewandowski was favourite to win the 2020 Ballon d’Or, having helped Bayern Munich win the treble last season and finishing top goal scorer.
“Robert, you deserve your Ballon d’Or. Last year, everyone was in agreement to say that you were the big winner of this award,” Messi had said after receiving his seventh Ballon d’ Or.
However, speaking on the development, France Football editor-in-chief Pascal Ferré, insisted that Lewandowski is open to the possibility.
“What Messi said was nice and clever. I think we do not have to make very quick decisions. We can think about it and at the same time we should respect the history of the Ballon d’Or, which is based on voting,” Ferré told Watson via Bulinews.
“We can’t be sure if Lewandowski would have won the Ballon D’Or last year. We can’t know because there was no vote. But, to be honest, Lewandowski would have had a great chance of winning last year.”
