Robert Lewandowski admits that he is in the best shape of career
Robert Lewandowski said that he is feeling better than ever. He created many chances and was very active in the attacking line against Barcelona.
Lewandowski numbers are getting better
Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski says his “numbers are better than ever” and that at 33 he believes he can play at the top for “at least another four years”. Lewandowski’s double against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday took his tally for 2021/22 to eight in five competitive games, meaning he has found the target in his last 18 consecutive outings. In addition to breaking Gerd Müller’s single-season Bundesliga goal haul last term by netting 41 times, the Polish marksman has consistently been by far and away the most lethal forward in the game for the last couple of years.
Since 2019, Robert Lewandowski scored 112 goals
He has registered 112 goals in all competitions for Bayern since the start of the 2019/20 campaign, more than any other striker in Europe’s top five leagues across that period. By way of comparison, Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo are next on that list with 76, followed by Erling Haaland (74) and Lionel Messi (69). I feel like I’m 25 or 26, Lewandowski told German newspapers. My numbers now at age 33 are better than ever. Not just in terms of fitness; every metric out on the pitch is better than it’s ever been in my career. After a four-week break over the summer, going into pre-season I had a better foundation than I’ve ever had in my career. Thirty-three is just a number. For me, it doesn’t show how old I really am.”And while Lewandowski is at an age when players traditionally call time on their careers, their bodies no longer able to cope with the exacting demands of elite-level football, the Bayern hitman insists he is entertaining no such thoughts.
