Lewandowski Responds To Messi's Ballon d'Or Speech

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has responded to Lionel Messi's speech about being gifted the 2020 Ballon d'Or title.

Messi clinched his record seventh Ballon d'Or crown last week after beating out competition from Lewandowski and Chelsea star Jorginho, who finished second and third, respectively.

Upon receiving the accolade, the Argentine claimed that Lewandowski deserved to win the prize last year, when France Football had cancelled the 2020 edition due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Bayern striker, though, is not too concerned about getting the award for 2020, and is seemingly not sure Messi's words were sincere.

"I'm not that enthusiastic about getting the 2020 award," he told Kanale Sportowym. 

“I would like it [Messi's statement] to be a sincere and courteous statement from a great player and not just empty words.”

France Football editor Pascal Ferre has since not ruled out the possibility of giving the Bavarians striker the award for 2020.
