Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann believes Polish striker Robert Lewandowski deserves the Ballon d’Or and “they have to give it to him because in the last three years he has been more consistent than any other.”
“The Ballon d’Or he deserves it and I think they have to give it to him because in the last three years he has had an incredible constancy superior to that of any other, “said Nagelsmann in an interview with the Munich daily” Abendzeitung “.
Nagelsmann also believes that Lewandowski, who is 33, still has many years of football ahead of him.
“He is extremely dynamic, he doesn’t get injured much, he trains intensively. I think he has a few years left at the highest level because he organizes his whole life for it,” explained Nagelsmann.
Lewandowski has a contract with Bayern until 2023 and contacts for the renewal have not yet been initiated.
At Bayern there is a custom of not renewing players who have passed the age of 30 for more than 1 year, and two legends of the recent history of the club such as Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben were not spared.
In the previous season, Lewandowski scored 41 goals in the Bundesliga, which, in addition to winning the Golden Boot, surpassed a record held by Gerd Müller for five decades.
