As you know, the Golden Ball award was canceled this year due to the coronavirus. This is especially bad for Robert Lewandowski. Bayern boss Rummenigge will speak to the FIFA president on the matter.
Robert Lewandowski has scored 34 goals in the German championship, and most likely, this season is the best in his career. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, chairman of Bayern Munich’s board of directors, thinks the Polish player has the best season and deserves the title of the best player of the year. The Pole, however, missed out on a chance to win the Ballon d’Or as France Football canceled the award this year.
“This is very sad news for us,” Rummenigge told a news conference on Monday. Moreover: we think this is an unfair decision because of Robert Lewandowski, who had a grand season. I believe Robert deserved the golden ball this year, and he had a great chance. ”
Rummenigge is not going to give up and will try his best: “Later, I will talk to FIFA President Gianni Infantino. I will try to convince him to convince the editorial staff of France Football. Or maybe FIFA will be able to organize the golden ball. ” – added the Bayern chef.
However, it is clear that Rummenigge will have a hard time getting his way. Whatever it is, after 2016, FIFA and France Football no longer hold the Golden Ball award ceremony together. FIFA, in turn, hosts The Best and awards the player of the year so. But the event scheduled for September 21 in Milan has also been canceled. According to the latest information, FIFA will try to think of an alternative.
