Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has offered his opinion on the Ballon d'Or. Speaking at a press conference while on international duty, the striker made it clear that he remains focused on upcoming games for club and country.

Although Lewandowski was dismissive in his response, he admitted he might begin to think about the award as the ceremony draws closer.

"I stopped thinking about it too much. It would certainly not help me to think about my chances of winning it, the speculations and the leaks in the media. I prefer to focus on something else,” Lewandowski said.

“Maybe when the gala gets closer, I’ll start to think about it. It’s the beginning of November, so there’s still some time. Of course, the Ballon d'Or is a great award, but there’s no need to think about it, because I still have a lot to do before and after the gala,” he added.
