Barcelona star striker, Robert Lewandowski has insisted getting Ballon d’Or with Barcelona is faster than with Bayern Munich.
The Poland international completed a €50 million (£42m/$51m) transfer from Bayern Munich to Barcelona in the summer and has already been firing on all cylinders for his new club, scoring 11 goals in eight matches across all competitions.
He continues to have his sights firmly set on a maiden Ballon d’Or and believes that playing for Barca is a shot in the arm to win the individual award.
“I know that Barcelona are a team where the most players have won it,” Lewandowski told a press conference while away on international duty with Poland. “I think the path is shorter from Barcelona than from Bayern (Munich).”
Lewandowski came close to winning the Ballon d’Or in 2021 but missed out by a whisker as Lionel Messi secured his record-extending seventh Golden Ball.
However, the 34-year-old will be among the contenders again this year and will hope to also be in the running in 2022 if he continues to impress at Camp Nou.
