Löw would not give the Ballon d'Or to Lewandowski

"My Ballon d'Or this year would go to Manuel Neuer. It was very much to blame for Bayern to end up winning the Champions League," said the German coach.


Joachim Löw does not share the majority opinion in Germany about who should be the next Ballon d'Or. At Bayern Munich, they have been clear about it for a long time. Robert Lewandowski, brand new triple champion and top scorer of the three competitions in which he participated, is the great favorite and desired by the leadership of the sixteenth European champion. The Mannschaft coach, as usual, does not share the opinion of the Bavarian side and has not been slow to put his chest out in favor of another player, precisely a Lewy teammate at Bayern.

"My Ballon d'Or this year would go to Manuel Neuer. How he stopped in the final phase in Lisbon!", Said Löw in an interview with the German newspaper Kicker. "It was a lot to blame for Bayern to end up winning the Champions League. Against Lyon and PSG, Manuel appeared in the most difficult moments. Otherwise, it might have been 0-1 or 1-1," explained Löw, for whom Neuer He continues to be the most important pillar of his team together with the Real Madrid player Kroos.

It would be the second time in history that the Ballon d'Or ended up in the showcases of a goalkeeper (the legendary Lev Yashin won it in 1963), but the Mannschaft manager is convinced that Neuer deserves it more than anyone else. "Throughout the 19/20 season he has been in spectacular form. Manuel is unique in his position. It's crazy, incredible. In the semifinals against Lyon he already had two or three actions in which he stands still with that calm and that charisma. It gives you the feeling that it is omnipresent ", concluded Löw.
