Could the Polish Hitman finally get the award he deserves?

If there is one player who deserves the Ballon d’Or, it is Bayern Munich scoring machine Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski broke the Bundesliga scoring record and has been the best, most consistent player on the planet for at least three years running.

While many Bayern Munich fans know this, not many outside of Germany seem to be throwing their support behind the Poland international. Italian journalist Gianluca DiMarzio, however, thinks Lewandowski is the best choice.

“Lewandowski deserves the Ballon d’Or the most. Not only because of his career, but what he’s showing from match to match. He is consistent and scores all the time. He should have won it last year,” said DiMarzio (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia). “When it comes to football merit, he is my favorite. If Robert were not to win, my heart tells me that the Ballon d’Or should go to Jorginho. It would be an award for all of Italy. However, Robert deserves it the most from a footballing point of view.”

Even with Lewandowski’s prestigious resume, it is hard to think that Lionel Messi will not somehow pull this out (once again).
