– I hope Robert wins the Golden Ball. He has to get her because he is the best striker in the world. He scores goals in every, well, almost every game. He can also work well defensively. I think he has made a lot of progress this season, especially when he doesn’t get into the game well and doesn’t receive many passes, the 34-year-old coach told Viaplay in front of the cameras.
“I think Robert will score a lot more goals and win the Golden Ball,” concluded Nagelsmann. The German joined the entire pantheon of football stars who support the Pole in the race for the prize. It is enough to mention the legendary Luis Suarez Miramontes, Luis Figo or Kevin De Bryune.
Golden Ball returns after a year of break – the monthly (and previously the weekly) “France Football” canceled last year’s gala due to the coronavirus pandemic. While in 2020 the captain of the Polish national team was miles ahead of all opponents, the victory in Copa America made Leo Messi fight a fierce battle with the Pole in this year’s edition of the plebiscite.
– As for the Golden Ball, I stopped thinking about it too much. It would definitely not help if I only thought about it in terms of how many chances I have to win, what are the speculations, the information. I take it calmly. On the day of the gala, there will be time to think about it – said the sniper himself at the beginning of November.
