The Poland international has amassed a staggering 53 goals from just 44 appearances this season and his form has led to suggestions that he is on the same level as Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, speaking in a press conference, Setien dismissed the same. While the Spaniard acknowledged that Lewandowski is a great footballer, he added that Messi is quite clearly the better player among the two, he told: “Lewandowski is a great footballer, but he’s not on Leo’s level – that’s clear. He [Lewandowski] has scored 13 goals in the Champions League and he is well assisted by his team-mates. He’s in a great moment, but Leo is too, as we saw against Napoli.”
