Erling Haaland has received a reminder from Robert Lewandowski that winning the Ballon d’Or best striker award next year may not be a given.
Lewandowski received the Gerd Muller Trophy on Monday for the second time. The award is given to the offensive player who has demonstrated the greatest improvement over the previous year. The talented Pole scored 57 goals in total last year, including 50 for Bayern Munich.
The 34-year-old has scored 14 goals in 13 games for his new side Barcelona this season, a feat which went unnoticed due to Haaland’s spectacular return for Manchester City.
Despite shutting out Liverpool on Sunday in a 1-0 loss, the 22-year-old has already scored 20 goals for the season in just 12 games. He is set to win the Premier League Golden Boot and could end up with the most goals in Europe.
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba called Lewandowski ‘on fire’ as the Barcelona player accepted his award at the ceremony and mentioned Haaland’s incredible start to the season.
