Robert Lewandowski Reacts After Losing 2021 Ballon D’or To Messi by damilola4162(m): 5:17pm On Nov 30, 2021
Lionel Messi, on Monday night, November 29, beat Beryen Munich striker Robert Lewandowski and other players to win the 2021 Ballon d'Or award, for the seventh time, Newspremises reports.

Lewandowski was pipped to the Ballon d’Or by Lionel Messi while Chelsea’s Jorghino came third, and Cristiano Ronaldo came a distant sixth.

Lewandowski lost the Ballon d’or to the Argentine Messi, who guided Argentina to their first international trophy in 28 years by winning the Copa America.

PSG forward Lionel Messi admitted that Robert Lewandowski “deserved to win the Ballon d’Or 2020” in his acceptance speech for the 2021 prize.

However, some football fans over the world have criticised the decision to hand Messi this year's Ballon d'Or, they claimed 'it's absolutely not deserved'.

They are of the opinion that Lewandowski deserve the award more then Messi.

Reactingto his 2021 Ballon D'or loss to Messi, Lewandowski took to his verified tweeter handle on Tuesday, to congratulate Messi and all nominated players, noting that, no Player can win an individual award without strongest team and loyal fans behind him. He thanked his fans for their support.

Lewandowski tweeted:

"Congratulations Leo Messi and @alexiaputellas winners of the #BallonDor2021, congratulations also to all nominated players! I won Striker of the Year Award and no Player can win an individual award without strongest team and loyal fans behind him. Thank you for your support."

In another post on Instagram, late Monday night, Lewandowski wrote;

“To start, I would like to congratulate Lionel Messi, Ballon d’Or Winner,”

“I want to thank every single journalist who voted for me, and believed that my achievements were important in 2021.

“I won Striker Of The Year Award and no player can win an individual award without the strongest team and loyal fans behind him. And for me it’s no different.

“I want to thank my club Bayern Munich for the platform they’ve given me to succeed and to achieve my dreams.

“I want to thank my teammates from the Polish National Team and from Bayern Munich. I also want to thank my fans for supporting me every single day it means a lot to me.

“And the most important thing, huge thanks to my family. Thank you Mom, thank you Anna – you are the love of my life and my best friend, thanks to my sister Milena and to my friends and management team for the continuous support, the foundation of my achievements.

Lionel Messi had collected the Ballon d’Or honor for a record sixth time in 2019 — one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo — before the awards were cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ronaldo did not attend Monday’s event at the Theatre du Chatelet in the French capital but responded to Ferre, the editor of France Football – organisers of the Ballon d’Or, on social media, saying he lied when he said Ronaldo's ambition was to have more ballon D'or titles than Lionel Messi.

Those that claim Lewandoski should have won, should logically explain how Messi with the best individual stats ended 5th in 2018.

For those that said, Sanchez should have won Balon D'or for winning Copa America in 2016.....please read and stop misleading others.

In 2016, Sanchez had a good stats. Was his individual performance Balon D'or worthy despite his 48goals and assists combined? No, because others had better stats. In 2016, winning Copa America was not enough to get Sanchez nominated because his individual performance was dwarfed by other players compare to Messi whose individual stats can only be matched by Lewandoski in 2021.

In 2016, Sanchez was not EPL top Scorer nor Best Player but in 2021, Messi topped goal chart in Spain.

In 2016, Sanchez was Copa America Best Player while in 2021, Messi was not just the Best Player in Copa America but also topped goal chart.

Look at the screenshot carefully, In 2016, Messi had 51 goals plus 29 assists which means he was involved in 80 goals and assists.

while Ronaldo had 44goals and 16 assists which means he was involved in 60 goals and assists.

Messi had a better individual stats in 2016 but Ronaldo backed his with UCL & Euros.

Now compare Sanchez's stats with those that were nominated let's see if he would even stand a chance.

Personally, I feel bad for Lewandoski cos he should have won 2020 without a fight but unfortunately, he can't win 2021 out of pity. It wasn't Messi fault that the organizers cancelled it.
