Robert Lewandowski is on a goal-scoring spree for Bayern Munich and believes his best is yet to come. So, even as we’ve covered the world’s most expensive football transfers, Lewandowski sees no reason for leaving Bayern, for one.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski believes he can only improve with age.
Furthermore, Lewandowski doesn’t need to prove himself in a league other than the Bundesliga and a club other than Bayern.
The Poland international spoke on Tuesday after receiving the European Golden Shoe award.
He’s won the Golden Shoe 2021 because he is the continent’s leading scorer in the 2020-21 season (football news).
Lewandowski scored 41 goals in 29 Bundesliga games. With these numbers, he broke the late Gerd Muller’s record for most goals in a single German top-flight season.
He thus surpassed, last season, Lionel Messi’s 30 goals in his final La Liga season with Barcelona by 11 goals. And he also had 12 goals more than Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 29 times for Juventus in 2020-21 Serie A.
Meanwhile, Lewandowski only failed to score in four of his 29 top-flight appearances. Moreover, the reigning UEFA and FIFA Player of the Year found the net more than once on ten occasions.
Lewandowski has continued where he left off last season, in this new 2021-22 season. He’s slotted in 14 goals in 10 appearances for club and country, including a goal in each of Bayern’s games.
Indeed, the 33-year-old has now scored in 15 straight Bundesliga games dating back to last season. With 15 consecutive match goals, he fell short of another long-standing record that Muller still holds by just one match.
Football Transfers – Lewandowski Sees No Reason for Leaving Bayern
During the most recent transfer window, Robert Lewandowski saw strong links to a move to either Real Madrid or Chelsea.
But the former Borussia Dortmund man is not looking to leave the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich’s home grounds.
“I don’t have to prove myself in another league,” he said when collecting his latest award, according to Goal. “I can compete with the best from other leagues in the Champions League.”
He then continued: “I am 100 per cent focused on Bayern Munich. I don’t think about anything else but my team.”
“I am still here – and I will be here for a long time,” he said. “Age is just a number. I feel very good and I have the best stats I’ve ever had.
“I know that with my body I can play at the top level for years to come. I’m like good wine and I hope to get even better.”
