Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, has reacted to being snubbed by Lionel Messi in The Best FIFA award voting, by declaring “I didn’t do anything wrong that he can be mad at me”.

Lewandowski won the Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year for the second successive year on Monday night.

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Messi, settled for second place, while Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah completed the top three.

Lewandowski clinched the prize despite not receiving a vote from Messi, who won last year’s Ballon d’Or ahead of the striker and then suggested that Lewandowski should have won the 2020 Golden Ball in his acceptance speech.

The Poland international was asked at a press conference to address the contrast between Messi’s comments at the Ballon d’Or ceremony and his voting choices for The Best prize

He said: “Those were very nice words from him. Now regarding his choice: the question has to be asked of him. I didn’t do anything wrong that he can be mad at me – except sporting things.

“Privately, I hope everything was okay. That was his choice, I have to respect that. I don’t have to say anything negative or be mad.”

Messi was included in Lewandowski’s top three, but only as a runner-up as he opted for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho as his preferred winner.
