Robert Lewandowski Beats Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi As He’s Crowned 2020 Best Fifa Men’s Player


Robert Lewandowski has won the 2020 Best Fifa Men’s Player award – beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to the gong.

The Polish striker, 32, was the main man as Bayern Munich completed an historic treble in 2019-20.

Lewandowski scored goals for fun as the German giants clinched the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB-Pokal titles.

And he was placed alongside Ronaldo and Messi, with 11 Ballons d’Or between them, on the three-man shortlist for the award – which recognises achievements between July 20, 2019 and October 7, 2020.

In that time, Lewandowski scored a staggering 60 goals in just 52 games – easily the best tally in Europe and 20 GOALS higher than any other player in the Big Five leagues.

Most-famously, he scored in Bayern Munich‘s 8-2 Champions League quarter-final humiliation of Messi’s Barcelona in August.

Just this week, the Polish superstar became only the third player in history to score 250 or more Bundesliga goals.

After winning the award, Lewandowski – who had never even been nominated for the award before 2020 – said: “I feel fantastic and very proud and happy. This is a great day for me and also for my club and team-mates. This award also belongs to my team-mates, coach and Bayern Munich in general.

“It’s an incredible feeling, really. 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 really means, regardless of where you come form, all that matters is what you put into it.

“For the entire world this year was difficult, the greatest highlight was winning the Champions League final – such a special day and evening, that was an incredible feeling. That was a great moment… then we won the cup and got every title we could possibly win. We have a great coach, great team and we all work towards one goal.”
