Robert Lewandowski, who plays forward for Bundesliga goliath, Bayern Munich, has torn into Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi.
Lewandowski was named 2021 FIFA Best Men’s Player last month, beating second-put Messi to the prize.
Two months sooner, Messi pushed out the Pole to bring home his record-breaking seventh Ballon d’Or title.
The Ballon d’Or last votes had prompted a few reactions, with spectators guaranteeing that Lewandowski had been looted.
Lewandowski has now moved to stir up the blazes between the two players, by guaranteeing that FIFA’s Best Men’s Player grant is a higher priority than the Ballon d’Or.
“I have been thinking lately and I have come to the conclusion that the FIFA award is more important.
“Only journalists vote for the Ballon d’Or, there is no clear verification.
“Instead, professional football and the press vote for the FIFA award.
“Perhaps in the prestigious ranking, the Ballon d’Or is better positioned, but the recognition I received by winning The Best makes me proud because I know how hard I worked for many years,” he told a Polish magazine, as per Marca.
