Messi forces France Football to award Lewandowski the Ballon d’Or

It seems that Lionel Messi’s talk at the Ballon d’Or gala about Robert Lewandowski’s eligibility to win the title in 2020 motivated France Football officials to award the award retroactively to the Polish international.

This was stated by the organizer of the Golden Ball and the editor-in-chief of France Football, Pascal Ferry, in his latest statements, during which he hinted at studying the situation, especially since the 2020 award had not been voted on.

And the Ballon d’Or award for 2020 was canceled due to the Corona virus pandemic, at a time when Lewandowski was closest to the title at the time after his great contribution to Bayern Munich’s achievement of the historic treble.

Ferry, in an interview with the media, said in this regard: “What Messi said was nice and smart, I think we should not make a decision too quickly now.”

He added, “We can think about it and at the same time we have to respect the history of the Ballon d’Or, an award that has always been based on voting.”

“We can’t be sure of the fact that Lewandowski would have won the Ballon d’Or last year, we can’t know because there was no vote,” Vieri added.

“But honestly, it was a great chance for Lewandowski to win it last year.”

It is worth noting that Messi surpassed Lewandowski by 33 votes in the Ballon d’Or vote 2021, despite only achieving the King’s Cup with Barcelona and the Copa America with Argentina.

As for Lewandowski, he was more goalscoring than Messi with 21 goals this year, in addition to winning the German League title with Bayern Munich.
