Ribery Believes Lewandowski Deserves Ballon d'Or More Than Messi And Ronaldo Sphamandla Ntshokotsha 08:23 Sphamandla Ntshokotsha Many pundits and journalist consider the Portuguese and Argentine to be the best players in the world right now, but French winger Franck Ribery feels it should be going to someone else. Ribery believes his Bayern teammate Robert Lewandowski deserves credit for his consistent performances season after season. "Lewandowski is incredible. He definitely deserves the Ballon d'Or," he told Bild. "I have played with great forwards here. Luca Toni was magnificent, later (Mario) Gomez and (Miroslav) Klose. But Robert is probably the most complete of all." Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the Ballon d'Or ceremony award since 2009, with the Portuguese star winning it four times and the Argentine claiming it on five occasions.
