Opinion: Lewandowski Was Wrong For Attacking Messi Over His Ballond'or Speech

When the 2021 Ballon D'Or award was given out, many people were very happy or very sad about the winner. Lionel Messi won the award for the best football player of the year, ahead of Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho Frello, who took second and third place. A lot of football fans and experts thought that Lewandowski deserved the award more than anyone else, but they didn't agree.

Afterwards, Lionel Messi thanked Robert Lewandowski for his performance in 2020 and asked that France Football give the Ballon D'Or award for 2020 to him. Lewandowski is the overwhelming favorite to win the award next year.

During an interview, Lewandowski said that Messi's statement was "Insincere and Empty." A report by the Daily Mail says that Bayern Munich striker Mario Gotze has also said that he doesn't care about small gifts.

Lewandowski is right to be angry after he lost a prestigious award in this way. This year's Ballon d'Or winner from Poland will be right to say that he deserves to be named the winner. But he was very wrong to pick on Lionel Messi because he told the award organisers to give him (Lewandowsk) his deserved award.

Messi, who can be seen at night, first said that Lewandowski was a great player in 2020. Because both him and other football fans think that he is the best player for 2020, then. He asked that the 2020 edition of the award, which was canceled because of the Pandemic that wiped out the entire world, be given to Lewandowski. Here, we can see that the man he was talking to was sincere and cared about fairness and equity.

Many football fans wanted Lionel Messi to say something after the game was called off. His statement is in line with what they wanted. In fact, Lewandowski was wrong when he said that Messi didn't mean what he said.
