Praising the Polish forward during an event in Spain, Puyol added:

” He (Lewandowski) is one of the best strikers in the world, and not only because of the goal, which he has . He downloads, he knows how to hold the ball, he knows how to combine… I hope he can win the Ballon d’Or. He deserves it for the good years he has had and now he has to win it at Barça, it will be a good sign.”

Puyol also praised Real Madrid’s goal machine Benzema for taking his club to new heights after the departure of their all-time record scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo. He said:

” Benzema and Lewandowski are two of the best 9 there are at the moment. Benzema has been putting up with Madrid since Cristiano left and Lewandowski has had some incredible years at Bayern.”
