Robert Lewandowski to be awarded with ball of salt to correct Ballon d’Or error

Robert Lewandowski missed out on the 2021 Ballon d’Or to Lionel Messi, who received the award for the seventh time in his illustrious career. The 33-year-old was considered by many to be the favourite to win this year after netting 53 goals in 43 appearances for Bayern Munich in 2021. 

The Polish town of Wieliczka is set to make amends, by awarding Lewandowski with a ball of salt. According to Goal, the city councillor of Wieliczka, Kamil Jastrzebski took to Twitter to voice his concerns, saying: 

‘There has been a great deal of injustice, and Robert Lewandowski has become its victim.

‘Therefore – as a member of Wieliczka – I propose that the city symbolically announce that Lewy is the best footballer in the world. 

”Wieliczka will actually do something that a few dozen hours ago was supposed to be just a joke to improve the mood, that is, it will symbolically recognise Lewandowski as the No 1 player in the world.

‘There was also a proposal to expand my idea. Some people want to give the captain of our team a Salt Ball. In the past, salt was called “white gold”, so it also has a historical and geographical basis.’

This year, Lewandowski broke Gerd Muller’s record of scoring 40 goals in one Bundesliga season. And he did so in less than 34 games, since the Bundesliga has 18 teams. Lewandowski missed out on the 2020 Ballon d’Or award due to the pandemic, and even Lionel Messi has conceded that the 2021 Runner up deserved to win the award last year.
