Robert Lewandowski wins the Golden Boot today, and the Ballon d'Or needs to be next

Tomorrow, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski will win one of the few individual trophies that has eluded him so far — the European Golden Boot (also called shoe, but “boot” sounds cooler), awarded to the highest domestic scorer in Europe for the season. Lewandowski scored 41 goals in the Bundesliga, beating the likes of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to the award.

Last year, Lewy narrowly missed out on the honor due to Ciro Immobile being awarded 14 (!) penalties by Serie A referees. Luckily, Immobile’s improbable feat didn’t repeat itself, and wouldn’t have mattered if it did. Lewandowski just had an amazing season, somehow beating Gerd Muller’s legendary 40-goal-a-season record in the Bundesliga despite missing a month due to injury.

The Golden Boot is safely his.

How @Lewy_Official shaped up against the rest of Europe week by week in 2020/21.

It was never in doubt, really. #Bundesliga

Now of course, you know what we’re going to say next. The title already tipped you off. We want to see Robert Lewandowski awarded the Ballon d’Or this year. After the last two seasons he’s had, he deserves it more than anybody — especially since France Football owes him for unfairly cancelling the Ballon d’Or last year. Lewy might already have a FIFA The Best award under his belt, but he wants that Ballon d’Or, and all of us Bayern Munich fans want him to get it too.

What competition does he have? Ronaldo didn’t win anything with Juventus, he wasn’t even the European top scorer. Messi was good this year, but nowhere near as good as Lewy was. Yes he won an international trophy, but there’s a difference between winning the Copa America with Argentina and competing in the Euros with Poland. Lewy was forced to be a one-man-show. Jorginho is getting Ballon d’Or shouts because of the Euros, but he’s not even Chelsea’s best midfielder, let alone the best player in the world.

Lewandowski deserves the Ballon d’Or. C’mon France Football, do something right for once.
