BERLIN: Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann warned the rival teams’ defense lines that Polish international striker Robert Lewandowski has many years left on the field.
Nagelsmann said Lewandowski deserved to be crowned the best player in the world this year.
Lewandowski turned 33 last August, but he continues to shine remarkably, whether with Bayern Munich or the Poland national team.
Lewandowski scored 41 goals with Bayern Munich last season, breaking the record of legend Gerd Muller, who scored 40 goals in one season.
Lewandowski scored a goal in 60 minutes and seven seconds, the highest rate since the start of the Bundesliga in 1963.
The Best in the World awards ceremonies were canceled last year due to the Corona pandemic, but Lewandowski remains among the top candidates for the award this year.
“He deserves the award for the best player in the world… I think he should win the award, because he has played more consistently than anyone else in the last three years,” Nagelsmann told the newspaper “Eppend Zeitung” today, Thursday.
Nagelsmann expects Lewandowski to continue to shine at the highest levels in the near future.
“If Lewandowski’s body remains in the same condition it is now, the end will be very far away,” he said.
He concluded by saying: “He is very active and does not suffer from injuries, he can train a lot, and I am completely confident in his ability to play at the highest levels for several years to come.”
