As compared to his former club, Bayern, Robert Lewandowski believes he would finally be able to win the Ballon d’Or at Barcelona.
The Polish football star was the clear favorite in 2029. However, he missed out on the Ballon d’Or award after France football made the decision to cancel it due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its restrictions, and was then pipped by Lionel Messi the following year after he (Messi) won the Copa America.
The striker Lewandowski joined his new club, Barcelona, in the summer and has made a brilliant start, scoring 11 goals in eight games.
Speaking over the weekend, the 34-year-old said: ‘I didn’t expect the Barca fans to start singing for me at the Camp Nou so quickly. It makes me feel like I’ve been here for a long time. ‘ as per reports from Marca.
‘Barcelona is the team where the most players have won the Ballon d’Or. I think the path is shorter from Barca than from Bayern.’
Karim Benzema remains the favorite to win the award next after his stunning season with Real Madrid last term.
