Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski is considered deserving of the Ballon d’Or if the award is given in 2020. This opinion came from former Portuguese national team player Nuno Gomez.
It cannot be denied, that the Polish player is indeed the most consistent in scoring goals this season, compared to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
With Bayern Munich, Lewandowski has scored a total of 55 goals in all competitions this season. That includes 15 goals in the European Champions League which led Die Roten to become champions.
The incision feels complete with Bayern Munich’s treble winner this season. Yes, the German club has successfully won the German Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and European Champions League.
It’s a shame indeed, France Football has announced not to hold the Ballon d’Or this year. This is because the competition has not fully run for the season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In fact, if the award remains, Nuno Gomes believes the former Borussia Dortmund player deserves the Ballon d’Or.
“I think he deserves the 2020 Ballon d’Or if the award is held. He is a striker who is deadly if you play against him.”
“You also have to watch him because if you give him a little space, he will score goals. One of the best strikers at the moment, for sure, “Gomes told Stats Perform News.
Furthermore, Gomez talked about Kylian Mbappe who had to take the bitter pill for failure in the final round.
However, Gomes still believes that the 21-year-old striker will at least become one of the top three players in the world today, and he is still very much able to develop.
“Mbappe has a lot of room to grow. I am sure, if his career develops normally, he will be one of the best players the next generation will hear in the years to come. ”
“He has a lot of potential, he is pure talent, he has speed, sometimes he determines the game. So I think in the coming years we will hear about his name in the top three of world football,” he concluded.
