Hello FC Bayern fans, follow me on my trip to the Ballon d’Or. Best wishes, your Lewy! We’re very happy to be here, it’s always something different, something special. I think it’s nice for someone from FC Bayern to be in attendance. There are always surprises in this ranking. Sometimes you can predict it and sometimes you can’t. That’s the way it is with this award. If you win something with the team and always play at a high level, you see so many players here together in one room. It’s a bit different to being on the pitch or in the stadium where we normally see each other. For example, today we’re wearing suits. It’s something different, a new experience from the usual meetings on the pitch. I’m happy that I don’t just help the team with my goals, but also with my general play. That has always been my goal, give everything for the team so that we end in victory. Everyone in the team works equally hard and we all want to push in my direction and go from win to win. Sometimes we have to accept defeats as well. But what happened against Leverkusen in the last game is in the past now, and it only happens once a season. He is a deadly striker, he’s simply a fantastic striker. He’s been doing it for years. When you look at how many goals he’s scored this year alone it’s something special. People often don’t understand just how hard it is to be so consistent and maintain these standards – but he does it.
