Recently it knew that the nominated to the best player of the FIFA for this 2020 are Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and the Polish forward Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich). However, the nominations of the leading insignia of the Barcelona team and of the Juventus have been criticised for considering that his performance in the field this year has not been the one of past years, neither has been to the pair of the of other players.

When seeming part of the public opinion considers that the prize would have to be for Lewandowski, since his team is the one who keeps like valid champion of the UEFA Champions League. On the other hand, also it defends the name of other players that could have been finalists in the prize instead of Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, as for example the Brazilian Neymar or Mbappé, finalists of the maximum European competition with the PSG, or even Erling Haaland, Kevin Of Bruyne or Karim Benzema.

"Have to be just, neither Messi neither CR7 deserved be between the three finalists to #TheBest this year. I would have put to Neymar and to Kimmich in his place", wrote in Twitter Joan Prats. "#TheBest Has to be Lewandowski. From here for down a swindle", thought David Sweiger. "Neither Christian neither Messi deserve to be above Neymar or until Neuer", thought José Fernando with regard to the nomination announced by the FIFA.

In this regard, Iñaki Álvarez said the following: "Cristiano, Messi and Bielsa in #TheBest or how give him to the public what wants. It results the same win the Champions League that rise to a team, and put goals that win it everything. Like this it is the football in period of social networks"

Only in the course of this year, Messi already has won the prize Laureus, although the Barça have not won any of the three main titles (LaLiga, The Glass of Rey or the UEFA Champios League). By his part, the ex forward of the Real Madrid has won the Golden Foot in the course in which his current team, the Juventus, has won by second consecutive year the Series To. But any of the two can surpass the triumphs of Lewandowki, the one who beside the Bayern already has won the Budesliga by five consecutive years and this year has won also the Glass and the Supercopa of Germany.
