Robert Lewandowski insists that he is not interested in competing with Karim Benzema of Real Madrid for the title of best striker in the world.
During their time at Real Madrid and Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi had a friendly rivalry, and now that Robert Lewandowski has joined the Catalan giants, there will be another direct comparison between two of the game’s best players, who will both be competing for the Ballon d’Or.
He scored 50 goals and 7 assists for Bayern Munich last season, while Benzema scored 44 goals and 15 assists in 46 matches for Real Madrid.
According to Lewandowski, it’s not a rivalry he’s interested in engaging into despite having all the ingredients.
By contrast, “I look at myself and my squad and not others,” he said in an interview with Sport1.
Of course, you look forward to games like the Clasico and Benzema is an excellent striker, but in the end, it’s about winning trophies with Barcelona.
“It doesn’t matter what else you know.”
In response to claims that he only moved to La Liga to increase his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or, the Polish player said he doesn’t care about individual awards like that.
Lewandowski went on, “I have always said that the success of the team is what drives me.” “These prizes are nice, but I didn’t want to go to Spain for them. Parts of what was written were not true.”
