Bayern Munich Lewandowski is favourite to win Ballon d’or says Flick.
Bundesliga champion(Bayern Munich) head coach Hansi flick believes that Robert Lewandowski can win the Ballon d’Or after scoring two goals and help his team to win the DFB-Pokal title.
Lewandowski scored twice for Bayern Munich and sealed the match in favour for his team to retain their DFB-Pokal crown.
David Alaba and Serge Gnabry’s goal put Bayern in the commanding position. Lewandowski scored twice in the second half and steal the show with his sizzling performance with goals in the 59th and 89th minutes behind closed doors in Berlin.
Robert Lewandowski’s breathtaking form continues in 2019-20 and with the two goals against Bayer Leverkusen he extended his goal tally to 51 goals across all competitions this season.
Lewandowski is a top scorer in Bundesliga with 34 goals and helps the Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga title. Lewandowski scored 11 goals in the champions league as the biggest competition in Europe prepares to return next month.
Flick said to the reporters “Fifty-one goals are already very strong. The first goal Lewy scored, the third goal we scored, was already excellent”. Flick believes Lewandowski is favorite to win the Ballon d’Or this season.
“The way he takes the ball down there and the way he locks up. Of course, he’s had a bit of luck with that as well. But that’s what distinguishes him, that he has this confidence in his quality.
“If I measure for goals now and I see that he has scored 34 goals in the Bundesliga this year, then you can think about how a player from the Bundesliga can become the Ballon d’Or winner. So why not? He has laid all the groundwork with this achievement this year and I would wish him well.”
Messi is the player having most Ballon d’Or(6) ever in the history of football. Messi won the Ballon d’Or last year beating the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lewandowski’s season is just outstanding and the best striker set to be in action again in August when UEFA Champions League will be back.
