Bayern Star Would Not Give Ronaldo Or Messi The Ballon D'Or

Bayern Star Would Not Give Cristiano Ronaldo Or Lionel Messi The Ballon D'Or

By Keegan Kruger - Mar 16, 2017 07:00 PM @KeeganKruger

A Bayern Munich star has named one player he thinks deserves the Ballon d'Or – and it is not FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi or current holder Cristiano Ronaldo.

Reports: Mourinho Involved In Training Ground Bust-Up

Many pundits and journalist consider the Portuguese and Argentine to be the best players in the world right now, but French winger Franck Ribery feels it should be going to someone else.

Ribery believes his Bayern teammate Robert Lewandowski deserves credit for his consistent performances season after season.

"Lewandowski is incredible. He definitely deserves the Ballon d'Or," he told Bild.

"I have played with great forwards here. Luca Toni was magnificent, later (Mario) Gomez and (Miroslav) Klose. But Robert is probably the most complete of all."

Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the Ballon d'Or ceremony award since 2009, with the Portuguese star winning it four times and the Argentine claiming it on five occasions.

Frustrated Pep Defends City Tactics

Lewandowski has been in terrific form so far this season, scoring 33 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions for the Bavarians.

Do you think Lewandowski deserves a shout for the Ballon d'Or? Have your say in the comments section below.

Cr7 and Messie not just score these 50+ goals season after the other since '09 but they put flair, skill, art,special someting and power when needed, carry biggest teams constantly, lastly also competing with each other, that is really why it like this in past Ballon d'Or still going....!!!

You have always said that. Last time u said the German Goalkeeper, Robben and now Lewandoski? You can't compare him with Messi / CR7. If he was soo complete as you say he wud be scoring +50 goals every season like them. I only see jealousy and invy within your voice.

Robert you are sounding like an empty vessel.....yes we know they stole it from you in 2013 and gave it to Queen Penaldo but please that bitterness won't avenge it in any way......Lewandowski is a time strikes,one of the best presently, actually one of my favourites but please don't say he deserves that award.....even Griezmann your compatriot is more deserving than Lewandowski
