Robert Lewandowski reacts to Lionel Messi's 7th Ballon D'Or win

Robert Lewandowski reacts to Lionel Messi's 7th Ballon D'Or win


According to Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or for the seventh time in his career. The Bayern Munich player also sent his congratulations to Alexia Putellas, the winner of the women's Ballon d'Or, as well as to all of the other nominees.

France Football has announced that Lionel Messi has been named the winner of the Ballon d'Or award. The superstar of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) finished with 613 points, while Robert Lewandowski finished in second position with 580 points.

The Bayern Munich striker rushed to social media to congratulate Lionel Messi on winning the Ballon d'Or for the seventh time despite losing to his team. Also expressing his gratitude to Lewandowski for the support he has received from Bayern Munich and its fans. "It was his words," he said.

The Ballon d'Or 2021 has been awarded to Leo Messi and Alexia Putellas; congratulations to them and to all of the other players who were nominated! "Striker of the Year," because no player can win an individual distinction unless he or she has the backing of his or her teammates and supporters behind him or her. "Thank you so much for all of your assistance," Lewandowski wrote on Twitter.

During the 2021 season, Chelsea midfielder Jorginho was a strong contender for the Ballon d'Or award, which he won in 2016. Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski, on the other hand, were largely considered to be the frontrunners for this year's award. That was indeed the case, as the Pole finished only 33 points behind the overall winner of the competition.

It's fair to say that Lewandowski should consider himself unlucky not to have won the Ballon d'Or this season. Many of his followers predicted that he would win the award based on his performances in the previous year and this year.

The Bayern Munich striker, on the other hand, had to make do with the first-ever 'Striker of the Year' award. Last season, Lewandowski broke Gerd Muller's long-standing Bundesliga goalscoring record (40 goals) by scoring 41 times in 29 games, shattering the record set by the German legend.

It would be intriguing to see how Lewandowski reacts on the field following his failure to win the Ballon d'Or award this year.

Is it possible for Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski to compete for the Ballon d'Or once more?

Many people feel that if France Football had hosted the Ballon d'Or ceremony last year, the winner would have been between Messi and Lewandowski, rather than between the two.

Regardless of their individual accomplishments, the two players have been vying for the title of top player in the world for quite some time.


If all goes according to plan for Messi and Lewandowski, they could find themselves back on the top step of the Ballon d'Or podium next year.
