Messi-Lewandowski feud? ‘I don’t know why he didn’t vote for me,’ says Bayern star

Is there a brewing feud between Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski and Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi? While an actual conflict may not exist, the Poland international has admitted that he was surprised when the Argentina captain did not vote for him in the The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award.

Regardless of Messi’s vote, Lewandowski did receive the award in a ceremony hosted by FIFA last month. Meanwhile, Messi won a record seventh Ballon d’ Or trophy in 2021. At the time, the former Barcelona captain admitted that Lewandowski also deserved to win.

However, Messi seems to have changed his mind and decided to vote for Real Madrid marksman Karim Benzema and his current PSG teammates Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe in The Best FIFA Men’s Player category.
