FIFA’s Best “awards ceremonies will be held tonight (Thursday), and Robert Lewandowski is considered a clear favorite to win the World Player of the Year title. And in truth, also a great injustice – if one of them picks up the title at the expense of the Bayern Munich striker.
The Polish scorer found no less than 55 goals in all competitions last season, leading the Bavarians to a super-impressive win in the treble – championship, cup and Champions League. And just moments before the ceremony, Lewandowski provided a final stamp in the form of a pair of goals for Wolfsburg’s net, which set up a makeover and a 1: 2 victory – four days after the disappointing draw with Union Berlin. By the way, the striker’s first goal of the two – was also his 250th in the Bundesliga.
Lewandowski himself was modest after the game and said regarding the ceremony: “I did not think about it too much because I was focused on the game.” One of the club’s seniors, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge The legendary, did the work for him: “It should be said out loud and clearly – Lewandowski deserves this title. He provided an outstanding season. Messi and Ronaldo? Are they more popular because their leagues are broadcast in most regions around the world. There are places on the map that the Bundesliga does not exist, and I I’m sorry about that. “
Another legendary player, Luther Mathews, was more assertive when referring to the “Best” ceremony: “If Lewandowski does not win the title, I will no longer have any confidence in FIFA. You can not do more than he did, it’s impossible. He won every possible degree. Messi did not win anything with Barcelona last season. “
Another who helped Bayern Munich get back on the winning track is Manuel Neuer, who provided one incredible save in a 1-2 draw. However, the veteran goalkeeper did not sound overly pleased: “We have not kept a clean sheet lately. My job is to save us from absorption. Sometimes the small details are missing to prevent goals.” Neuer, by the way, will also take part in the FIFA awards ceremony when he competes for the title of goalkeeper of the year in the world.
