Bayern Munich Striker Robert Lewandowski Wants To Play Until He's 40

Bayern Munich Striker Robert Lewandowski Wants To Play Until He's 40

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski believes he has the capacity to play until he is 40.

Having got himself in incredible shape, Poland's all-time top goalscorer is in the form of his life and notched a ridiculous 55 goals in 47 appearances as Bayern won a treble under Hans-Dieter Flick.

His current deal at Bayern is due to expire in 2023 but even after just turning 32, Lewandowski feels he's now in his prime and can still do the business for years to come.

Speaking to German outlet Kicker on his situation, the former Borussia Dortmund man said: "It will not be my last. Ending my career at FC Bayern is an option, of course, but I still have so many years to go.

"I don't think about the end of my career. I don't feel like 32. I feel better than when I was 26. I've worked very specifically in recent years to reach my optimal level."

When asked specifically how long he has left in the tank, last season's Champions League leading goalscorer replied: "Maybe eight years."

Lewandowski has dedicated himself to football, with former manager Pep Guardiola hailing his work ethic.

His displays on the pitch would suggest his unusual rituals are paying off. After enjoying the most successful campaign of his career to date, he can count himself extremely unfortunate that the Ballon d'Or award has been nixed this year due to COVID-19.

Many have expressed their disappointment over the decision, with Lewandowski himself stating he is the rightful winner of the prestigious prize.

In an interview with Polish outlet, Sportowe Fakty, Lewandowski was asked who he would have given the Ballon d'Or to, replying: "Myself.

"We won everything we could with Bayern. In every competition: Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League, I was the top scorer. I understand that the pressure of other parties on another player may be greater.

"But it's not like every footballer would win the Golden Ball by achieving what I do?"
