Bayern Munich star, Thomas Muller has backed teammate, Robert Lewandowski to win the 2021 Ballon d’ Or.
Muller believes Lewandowski absolutely deserved the Ballon d’ Or this year.
Lewandowski has been impressive for both Bayern Munich and the Poland national team so far this year.
The striker will battle Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi to Chelsea’s Jorginho, Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, among others for the Ballon d’ Or this year.
The winner of this year’s Ballon d’ Or will be announced on Monday, 29 November.
“Lewy has to win it [2021 Ballon d’ Or],” Muller told Sky Deutschland.
“He’s absolutely deserved it. Lewy won everything with us. Then the award was cancelled, then he went on and broke the goal-scoring record in Germany this season.
“When you see what he’s doing with the Polish national team — which is more difficult than in a real top team. I have to say there isn’t one player who individually performed better. Lewy has to win the Ballon d’Or.”
