Thomas Muller believes Robert Lewandowski should have trumped Lionel Messi after the Argentina international claimed his seventh Ballon d’Or title.

Messi collected his record-extending seventh accolade after more success with Barcelona and Argentina, who ended a 28-year wait for a major trophy with their Copa America win, despite struggling at new club Paris-Saint Germain.

The 34-year-old has scored just once for PSG in seven Ligue 1 outings this term, while Lewandowski has netted 25 times in 20 appearances across all competitions this season for Bayern.




The Poland forward also registered 41 goals in just 29 league games for Die Roten last campaign to break Gerd Muller’s 49-year record in a single Bundesliga season, but only finished runner-up at Monday’s ceremony.

While coronavirus forced a cancellation of the 2020 Ballon d’Or, which Lewandowski appeared favourite for, Muller feels his team-mate was deserving of the 2021 award as well.
