Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has had yet another perfect season. The striker’s outrageous recent form has convinced the Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that he is the best player in the world. The bayern chief has claimed that the Polish striker is even better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at the moment.
“He got the FIFA award for the best player in the world, so for me the case is clear”, Rummenigge told Wirtualna Polska.
“OK, great talents have emerged in world football, such as Kylian Mbappe. Nevertheless, Robert Lewandowski is currently the best footballer in the world. In my opinion, he is currently better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.”
Robert Lewandowski missed out on the Ballon d’Or due to the award getting cancelled. However, this season it will be almost impossible to ignore the Polish striker after he has scored 47 goals in 39 games so far this season. Lewandowski led his team to win the Bundesliga. Lewandowski’s influence at Bayern has been monumental, racking-up 293 goals in 328 games for the German side and operating as their difference-maker on the way to his first Champions League last season.
On the other hand, Messi has managed to score 38 goals in 47 appearances this term and Ronaldo bagging 36 goals in 44 games. However, both of them were unable to lead their respective teams to their domestic titles.
The Bayern Munich chief also added:
“I perfectly remember the scene after our last triumph in Lisbon. Robert was sitting on the pitch next to me. He even cried a little with emotion. And it was obvious, he told me how happy he was that he had made his big football dream come true with Bayern.’
