Former Premier League stars, Peter Crouch and Rio Ferdinand believe Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski deserves to win the Ballon d’ Or this year ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi.

Lewandowski was recently named among the 30-man nominees for this year’s Ballon d’ Or.

The Polish international will battle the likes of Messi, Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Chelsea’s Jorginho, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, among others for the Ballon d’ Or.

Speaking on the development on Wednesday night, Crouch told BT Sport, “I can’t argue with Lionel Messi, can I? Let’s be honest. But I just think if Robert Lewandowski doesn’t win a Ballon d’Or in his lifetime, I think it would be a travesty.

“And I think this year, with the amount of goals he’s scored… he’s got 22 goals now and it’s October – I didn’t get 22 goals in May!

“This is a special, special player. Ronaldo and Messi have always been the benchmark, always, but Robert Lewandowski, it’s his time to potentially win it this year.”

On his part, Ferdinand added: “In the calendar year, by the way, in the 38 games he’s played, he’s got 50 goals. No one is near that. This is today in the game, the goals are ridiculous, he scores every type of goal – that’s what I love about him.

“He’s got your No.9 goals where you’re at the back post heading balls in like that, he’s got deft touches.”

The winner of the 2021 Ballon d’ Or will be announced on November 29.
