Former Manchester United and Liverpool forward, Michael Owen, has named Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski as the player that deserves to win the 2021 Ballon d’Or.

Owen believes it would be an absolute crime if Lewandowski went through his career without winning the Ballon d’Or.

According to him, the Polish striker is a stunning player, adding that his numbers are quite staggering.

“It [2021 Ballon d’ Or] is very open this year. Of course, Messi and Ronaldo over the last decade or so have dominated it. I would say, Messi, out of the two of them, is probably ahead of the pair this season for the award, probably because of his exploits with Argentina and winning the trophy at an international level.

“I thought Lewandowski was so unfortunate not to win it in the COVID year when it was, it was obviously suspended or cancelled that year, and I would probably go with him. There are other candidates, don’t get me wrong, Mo Salah’s had a great season, although he’s not won anything. Jorginho, on the other hand, for Chelsea, [has] won everything. But I am not sure he’s potentially good enough to win it ahead of players like Lewandowski, and so I would probably go with him. He has won the Bundesliga again.

“His numbers are quite staggering. His goals in the last year. So I think I would go for Lewandowski. It would be an absolute crime if he went through his career without winning. He is a stunning player,” Owen told Euronews.

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

The 33-year-old was the favourite to win the Ballon d’Or in 2020, having scored 55 goals in all competitions for Bayern Munich, but the prize was not handed out because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lewandowski won the Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich.

The winner for this year’s Ballon d’Or will be announced on November 29.
