According to the report on Mirror, Peter Crouch disclosed that he is impressed with the number of goals Robert Lewandowski has scored so far.

Peter Crouch's comment

"I can't argue with Lionel Messi, can I? Let's be honest. But I just think if Robert Lewandowski doesn't win a Ballon d'Or in his lifetime, I think it would be a travesty.
"And I think this year, with the amount of goals he's scored, he's got 22 goals now and it's October - I didn't get 22 goals in May.''

Rio Ferdinand's comment

"In the calendar year, by the way, in the 38 games he's played he's got 50 goals. No one is near that. This is today in the game, the goals are ridiculous, he scores every type of goal - that's what I love about him.''
