Robert Lewandowski does not name Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo when asked for his GOAT

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski had a curious response when asked for his opinion on one of the oldest debates in football – who is the best player of all time?

The Polish striker, who was tipped as one of the favourites for the Ballon d’Or last year before the Covid-19 pandemic suspended the award, opted against naming a single player.

In a discussion with Lothar Matthaus for BILD, he explained that he believes the debate over who the best player ever is has constantly changed through the years.

He discussed his view that in previous years, Ronaldo would have been considered the best ever, but he was quickly eclipsed as football evolved.

The Bayern star also opted against picking either Cristiano Ronaldo – who has five Ballon d’Or awards to his name – or Lionel Messi, who has six.

“Players shape epochs. It used to be [Matthaus].

“The last 10, 15 years Messi, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Ronaldinho.

Lewandowski was considered a leading candidate for last year’s Ballon d’Or award, and subsequently won the FIFA Best Men’s Player award for 2020.

The striker was influential in Bayern’s treble-winning season, scoring 55 goals in 47 games across all competitions.

Lewandowski continued that good form into this season, and has already bagged 39 from 35 games as Bayern charge towards another Bundesliga title.
