Robert Lewandowski: I Was Wrong To Vote For Cristiano Ronaldo For The Ballon d’Or

Robert Lewandowski: I Was Wrong To Vote For Cristiano Ronaldo For The Ballon d’Or

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has sensationally revealed that he regrets voting for 2014 Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Polish international was speaking to German newspaper Die Welt when he revealed he made a mistake and would have changed his vote in order to back one of his Bayern team mates if he could.

Bayern’s goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was also up for the award and finished in third place behind Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Neuer received 15.72 per cent of the vote, missing out on second place by just 0.04 per cent but the German was a massive 37.66 per cent behind winner, Ronaldo.

Lewandowski said:

Voting for Ronaldo instead of Neuer was a mistake.

I would clearly vote for Neuer now if I had the chance.

But I already cast my vote back in August or something. I would vote different now.

I am sorry for Manu. I am really surprised that he did not even come in second and the big gap to Ronaldo also baffles me.

Manuel is an amazing goalkeeper and person.

Ouch, that’s got to sting for CR7.
