Meanwhile, former Spurs star Gareth Bale voted for Lewandowski, Karim Benzema and Salah.

Kane’s England boss Gareth Southgate disagreed with his captain’s pick, voting instead for Jorginho, Kevin De Bruyne and Messi.

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that Lewandowski deserved to win the award but I am surprised that Messi has finished as high as he has given the lacklustre second half of 2021 he has had PSG.

Despite winning both the Champions League and Euros, I also do not think Jorginho played well enough consistently to be in the running and I am surprised the Italian has got so many votes.
