Lewandowski can't choose between Del Pierro and Baggio

The Polish star has been following Serie A closely as a child.

Robert Lewandowski

has claimed that he wore the


shirt as a child and he can't choose between Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Pierro.

The Polish striker won the Tuttosport's Golden Player of the Year award for the second year in a row. He has performed very well in the last two seasons but has failed to win the Ballon d'Or. No Ballon d'Or ceremony was held last season, and this year Messi won it, while many considered Lewandowski worthy. Now the Bayern Munich star has spoken of his passion for football since childhood.

“I used to follow Serie A football,”

the striker said.

“There are big clubs in Italy, such as Inter,






. I had an Inter shirt as a child. I like to watch Serie A games because there was an incredible atmosphere.

“Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero were my favourite players, Baggio was a sort of idol.

“I loved his style and his hair. I also had a similar ponytail for some time when I was a kid. Then I became passionate about Del Piero, but I can’t really choose between them.”

Asked about the 

toughest defenders he’s ever faced, he replied: 

“I name two: Giorgio Chiellini and Sergio Ramos. They are tough and physically very strong. They know all the tricks of the trade, but they are always correct on the pitch. It’s hard, but also funny, to play against them."
