Ballon D’Or Organizers Accused Of ‘cheating’ Lewandowski As Messi Wins 7th Award

Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, was “cheated” after “only” finishing second in this year’s Ballon d’Or award, according to Bild, Newspremises reports.

The German newspaper labelled the final results as a “scandal”.

Messi, who joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer from Barcelona during the summer, collected 613 points, to win a record-extending seventh Ballon d’Or on Monday.

The Argentina captain has now added to his 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2019 trophies, after winning the Copa America for the first time with his country in July.

Lewandowski, who went home with the Best Striker prize, was runner-up with 580 points.

Jorginho ended up third with 460, ahead of France’s Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante in fourth and fifth places respectively.
