Bundesliga: Robert Lewandowski Drops Hint On Future As Bayern Munich Head To Bottom Side Greuther Fuerth

As Bayern Munich prepares for Friday’s away match against Greuther Fuerth, striker Robert Lewandowski has hinted that he could end his career there. After scoring a Bundesliga record 41 goals in 29 games last season, Lewandowski received Europe’s “Golden Shoe” on Tuesday as the highest scorer in European football. With seven goals in five league games, the Poland front is already the joint top scorer in the German Bundesliga, partnering Borussia Dortmund star attacker Erling Braut Haaland.

Despite being linked with a move to Real Madrid in the past, the 33-year-old Lewandowski told reporters that he “doesn’t need to prove myself in another league” and that he “doesn’t need to prove myself in another league.”

“I can compete with the best from other leagues in the Champions League. I’m 100 percent focused on Bayern Munich – I don’t think about anything else, but my team,” he added.

When Lewandowski brought his newly won Golden Shoe medal to training on Wednesday, his Bayern teammates formed a line to take pictures with the trophy.

With a 7-0 thrashing of Bochum last weekend, the Bavarian giants clinched first place in the Bundesliga.

Bayern has scored 38 goals in all competitions in their first eight games this season, and more goals are expected at Fuerth on Friday.

Fuerth have gained one point from a home draw against Bielefeld in their first five Bundesliga games since winning promotion last season.

Bayern Munich start as clear favourites, but will have to wait on the fitness of Serge Gnabry, who was out with flu on Wednesday, as well as attacking midfielder Jamal Musiala and reserve goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, who both suffered ankle and knee injuries after colliding in training at the start of the week.

Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer was awarded the Bavarian Order of Merit on Wednesday for his services to the southern German state, and Lewandowski was not the only Bayern player to get an accolade this week.

Neuer stated during the event that his ambition is to win the World Cup again and repeat Germany’s victory in Brazil in 2014.

Neuer responded, “That’s something on my to-do list.”
