Several people and even footballers did not like that Lionel Messi won the Ballon d’Or 2021 So what Robert Lewandoski be left empty-handed; One of them was Alan Pulido.
The Mexican striker criticized on Instagram that the France Football Magazine gave the award to the Argentine and thinks that the Pole deserved it, but they did not give it to him due to other extra-football factors.
“Once again, it is shown that football is very unfair, if someone deserved the Ballon d’Or 2021 more than anyone else it was this crack, but there are many interests involved that do not make this happen, a shame.”
Puligol clarified that he is not anti-Messi, but considers that winning the Copa América last season was not enough merit and that Lewandowski deserved it more.
“I clarify that I have nothing against Messi, on the contrary, he is a great player and without a doubt one of the best in the world, but this year all he did was win the America’s Cup, on the other hand Lewandowski has won almost everything.”
Lionel Messi won the seventh Ballon d’Or of his career and remains the highest winner of this award in history.
