Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has come out to hail Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski.
He recently revealed that the Poland forward is the closest thing he’s seen to Marco van Basten.
According to him, just his goals alone have been amazing and it is a pity that he is performing like this after the Ballon d’Or was canceled this year.
He added that it would’ve been great to see Lewa win the award to equal Modric’s record amid the Ronaldo and Messi domination for years.
His words, “Yeah, Lewandowski, in terms of what he’s done this year in terms of just goals alone, let alone his performances,”
“He had a hand in every goal in the last round against Chelsea. He’s not just an out-and-out goalscorer. He scores the goals as you’d expect from a No. 9, he can come over the back post, he scores the little deft touches, brings other people into the game. As a No. 9, he’s probably the closest I’ve seen to Marco van Basten.”
“If I’m Lewandowski and they have cancelled the Ballon d’Or, I’m starting up a petition to get it back on,”
“Aside from the year when Luka Modric won it, Messi and Ronaldo have dominated that award for the last 12 years and Lewandowski has taken himself to the next level this season.
“I can’t believe they have cancelled it. It’s cruel, that is a good word to describe it. Lewandowski deserves to win that award for what he has done this season and if he leads Bayern Munich to the Champions League and they still decide they won’t give it out to him, it’s not right.”
