– international sports, latest sports news, local games and international games

Polish player Robert Lewandowski could receive his first Ballon d'Or retroactively, according to the Spanish newspaper “Sport”. The award, considered for the player in 2020, was not awarded after allegations made by France Football, the French magazine responsible for awarding the award, that the Covid-19 pandemic had affected the course of the European football season.

Impeccable performance

At the time, 35-year-old Lewandowski was playing for Bayern Munich and scored 55 goals in 47 games. The striker was decisive in helping the German team win some of the biggest prizes on the European continent, including the German Championship, the German Cup and the Champions League. His performance in the 2020 season and the following one also earned him two consecutive FIFA The Best awards, but no Ballon d'Or, which frustrates the player to this day. In 2021, the Pole came second in the Ballon d'Or, whose winner was Lionel Messi and generated controversy.

Currently, the athlete is in his second season for Barcelona, ​​but his performance is lower than last season, in which he managed to be the top scorer in the Spanish Championship, scoring 23 goals. He has 17 in the current season, which ends in three games.

Possible fraud

The attempt to give the award to the Pole is, according to the newspaper Sport, an attempt to remedy the scandal that could arise following reports of possible pressure from Paris Saint-German on France Football in 2021 for Lionel Messi to win the award. Giving the award to Lewandowski would also be an attempt to recover the magazine's image among the public, since the traditional magazine, responsible for rewarding the best player in the world this season, has been falling into disrepute after controversies over possible tampering with the results.
