Bayern Star Robert Lewandowski Does NOT Pick Cristiano Ronaldo Or Lionel Messi In GOAT Debate

Robert Lewandowski doesn't believe that Barcelona captain Lionel Messi or Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo can be named the undisputed GOAT in football.

The 32­-year-old Bayern Munich striker was in scintillating form last season as he scored a whopping 55 times in 47 appearances.

The Poland captain was widely tipped as the favourite to win France Football's coveted Ballon d'Or award before it was cancelled due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Lewandowski is still in contention for the 2021 edition of the Ballon d'Or as he carried over his fine goalscoring form to the current season.

Speaking to Lothar Matthaus for German newspaper Bild, Lewandowski pointed out the GOAT debate is hard to settle due to the constant change in the world's best players over the years.

The former Borussia Dortmund star insisted that the world's top stars "manage to make difficult things appear easy and simple."

Lewandowski explained to German legend Matthaus: "There isn't a single player who can be singled out.

"Players shape epochs. It used to be [Matthaus]. The last 10, 15 years Messi, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Ronaldinho. Previously the Brazilian striker Ronaldo.

"There are always extraordinary talents, appearances that simply convey fun in football. World stars manage to make difficult things appear easy and simple."

Lewandowski has scored an impressive 39 times in 35 appearances across all competitions for Bayern this season.
