“I believe Robert Lewandowski is playing a fantastic season and he performed maybe the best season in his career,” Rummenigge told a news conference on Monday.
“Unfortunately, France Football cancelled the Ballon d’Or, which we are not very happy [about]. In the end, it’s not very fair – not just for Bayern but also for Robert Lewandowski, who might have won.
“I believe it’s very important that in a season that, except the French league, [the other leagues] performed through to the end of the season, it has to be possible to give the Golden Ball to the best footballer in the world and of course, I believe in those circumstances Robert would have a good chance to win it in the first time in his career,”
