The president of the board of directors of Bayern Munich, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, is confident that the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who already has 16 goals in the first eleven days of the Bundesliga, can beat the record of Gerd Muller, who scored 40 goals in a season
"You can't do better," Rummenigge said after Bayern's 4-0 victory against Borussia Dortmund, where on Saturday night the Polish player scored two goals again.
"I thought that the Gerd Muller record was for eternity. But I think Robert is the first one who could approach and endanger the Gerd Muller record," said the chairman of the muniques club board.
The legendary Muller broke the record in the 1971-72 season. In the match against Dortmund, Lewandowski became the first player to score in eleven consecutive days of the Bundesliga. "It's amazing that he scores one to three goals in each game, and a quality to take off his hat," praised Rummenigge.
