Goals, goals, goals: The "world's best striker" Robert Lewandowski continues to astonish with best values. He does not want to stop the run with a premature operation. He has cashed a Gerd Muller mark against BVB. Even the eternal record of the "bomber" is palpable.
The incredible Robert Lewandowski has already cracked this 50 year old record of "Bomber" Gerd Muller. With his brace in the 4: 0 against FC Bayern against Borussia Dortmund screwed the 31-year-old his season record to 16 goals high. The top scorer legend Muller met in the season 1968/69 "only" 15 times on the first eleven matchdays. "He's the world's best striker for me," his new head coach Hansi Flick praised him for the time being.
The former world-class attacker and Muller companion Karl-Heinz Rummenigge pursues the latest series of the Polish attacker only amazed. "I thought this record from Gerd Muller is for eternity, but I think Robert is the first one who can really get into the frontiers, that he can manage to put the Gerd Muller record at risk," he said Munich CEO. The legendary "Bomber" had scored the record of 40 goals in the 1971/72 season.
"It's amazing what he does for us"
Lewandowski, who expects the birth of his second child next year, scored 23 goals in 18 competitive games this season. As the first Bundesliga player ever met the Pole on eleven matchdays in succession. "It's amazing what he does for us, but there's a lot of hard work behind it, so he's an absolute role model," Flick enthused.
The acclaimed Torgarant, once criticized as an IU, even relied on the collective and defensive work of Bayern. "What we did was sensational, we defended very well from the first minute on, we pushed and won every single one of the two," said Lewandowski, who would like to have Flick longer as a coach. "I think that's an option, a good option."
The chief critic
Lewandowski has matured more and more into a leading figure. He is positioning himself more clearly in public. Before the BVB summit named the 31-year-old clearly problems in the changeable Bayern ensemble. "An axis that consists only of Neuer and Lewandowski, is not enough," said the Polish international in the "Suddeutsche Zeitung" (Saturday). He wants "commands" from more players on the court. He tried to shake up the younger players.
Bitter for the Bayern is that the assembly line scorers at some point expects a two-week break game. According to "Kicker" an appointment is planned shortly before the winter break. He had no pain, but an intervention on the bar would soon be necessary, said Lewandowski. "It's up to him to decide when to operate, and I think he has such a run that I would think it over in his place," Flick said at the time of the medical procedure. First, for Lewandowski are the internationals with Poland national team. (Sg / dpa)
