Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has sensationally declared that his best is yet to come after scoring 23 goals in 18 matches, at the age of 31 so far this season, insisting he doesn’t feel that old.
The Poland international netted a brace when Bayern mauled Borussia Dortmund 4-0 in Der Klassiker – completing his 16th in 11 consecutive games this season, thus surpassing Germany and Bayern Munich legend, Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record set in the 1968/69 season. Muller Der Bomber netted 15 goals in the first 11 league matches of that season.
“I worked very hard for this form. Currently it is going perfectly, my body feels good,” Lewandowski told Sport Bild in an interview.
“It’s good to have that in mind, but it does not mean that I’m resting. I want to get even better. I know when I can do more and when I need to slow down. My passport says: ‘Robert Lewandowski, 31 years old’. But that’s not
how I feel.
“My best spell is just starting now and hopefully will continue for some more years. The best is yet to come.”
Lewandowski is expected to rejoin Bayern Munich any time from Wednesday after helping Poland beat Slovenia 3-2 in Warsaw and in the 2-1 win against Israel at Teddy Stadium Jerusalem on Saturday to qualify Euro 2020 as the Group G winner. He netted Poland’s second goal against Slovenia.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
