Even though France Football confirmed for several months that this year the Ballon d’Or will not be awarded, the Liverpool footballer acknowledged that the captain of the Polish National Team did what was necessary to win the highest individual award in the world of football.

Mind you, Trent made it clear that the legacy that Lewandowski is building goes beyond an award: “I’m sure he will be somewhat disappointed because not many players of this era can say that they won (the Ballon d’Or), but he also knows what he has achieved and won many trophies this year. He’s an incredible player and getting those numbers at his age is impressive. This shows that footballers are taking this one step further. He’s setting an example for Europe’s strikers to try to follow ”.
Robert Lewandowski closed the 2019/20 season as champion, scoring leader and MVP in both the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal.

In the end, in the whole year, he ended up lifting 5 of 5 trophies and established himself as the top scorer of 2020. There is no doubt that he would have been the top favorite to win the Ballon d’Or.
