Agent of Bayern Munich ace Lewandowski slams Ballon D'Or voting after Messi triumph

The agent of Robert Lewandowski has slammed the Ballon D'Or after PSG star Lionel Messi took out the award on Monday.

Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski finished second behind Messi in voting.

But Lewandowski's representative Pini Zahavi insists that his client was more deserving of the award.

Zahavi told TZ in Munich: "Big congratulations to Messi: an impressive player and an eternal legend of football, but the Ballon d'Or 2021 does not belong to him. Not this time.

"The Ballon d'Or belongs to Robert Lewandowski. Robert was not robbed, but he is the man who deserves it.

"No wonder that many hundreds of millions of fans find it hard to believe the end result of this prestigious football event.

"Monday evening should have ended with Robert celebrating his first Ballon d'Or."
