According to statements about Lionel Messi: Robert Lewandowski sent clarification

The last Ballon d’Or election will very likely keep football busy for some time. After Robert Lewandowski spoke about Lionel Messi’s speech in Poland, the Bayern superstar tried to correct a few things.

In the end, it was obviously not meant as it was conveyed on TV and picked up by the media around the world. Robert Lewandowski was asked on Polish television what he actually thought of Lionel Messi, who had spoken out in favor of awarding Lewandowski the Ballon d’Or 2020 at a later date.

“My statement, which I made in an interview with a Polish TV broadcaster, is currently being misinterpreted,” says a statement that Lewandowski addressed to the kicker. “I never wanted to say that Lionel Messi’s words were not sincere or serious.”

And further: “On the contrary, Lionel Messi’s speech at the event in Paris, in which he expressed that, in his opinion, I deserved the Ballon d’Or 2020, touched and pleased me very much. With my statement I just wanted to say that I would of course be very happy if Messi’s words were heard. “

Lewandowski finished second behind Messi in this year’s Ballon d’Or election, which has been interpreted as a moderate scandal in football. “I think France Football should give you the award for 2020. You deserve it,” Messi said during his speech. Lewandowski was the absolute favorite for the Golden Ball last year. However, the election was suspended because of the corona pandemic.

Lewandowski wants to close the chapter as soon as possible and explains clearly: “I respect and appreciate Lionel Messi beyond measure and once again congratulate him on winning the Ballon d’Or 2021.”
