Robert Lewandowski who strikes for Bayern Munich has been named ‘The Best FIFA Men’s Player’ of the year ahead of the two most glamorous word footballers in Ronaldo of Juventus and Messi of FC Barcelona.
He helped his team win the UEFA Champions League in grand style last season, scoring a total of 15 goals ahead of the likes of Erling Braut Haaland (10), Serge Gnabry(9), and Gabriel Jesus (6) amongst others.
The Polish have been in a devastating form for a while and he ended up breaking the duopoly of Messi and Ronaldo who have dominated world football for over a decade now. Moments after he won the award, he delivered an acceptance speech quoted below;
“I feel fantastic. I am very proud and happy, to be honest, this is a great day for me, and also for my club and colleagues. This award also belongs to my colleagues, the coach, and Bayern Munich in general. It is an incredible feeling, a lot of emotions.
“If you win such an award and share that title with Messi and Ronaldo, that is unbelievable and it means so much to me. A long time ago, I remember I was longing for something like this and now I can win such an award. This means, regardless of where you come from, all that matters is what you put into it.”
