With 43 goals from 37 appearances in all competitions, Lewandowski has already equalized his best score in professional football in one season.

Robert Lewandowski is the best No.9

According to Bayern team-mate Javi Martinez, Robert Lewandowski is the number one striker in the world and is in the best shape of his career. With 43 goals from 37 appearances in all competitions, Lewandowski has already equalized his best score in professional football in one season. While Bayern wins the eighth consecutive Bundesliga title, the 31-year-old striker will be crowned for the fourth time in his career, although Timo Werner is only four goals behind, with five games left to play. Martinez were impressed by the exploits of the Poland international, the term, saying that he is the best in the game when he comes to finding the net.

Joshua Kimmich will be a legend

“He has the best year of his career. Everything is included. He is the best No.9 animal in the world. I hope he will continue this way until August,” Martinez told reporters. “Are you afraid that he will go to Real Madrid? No, because the great players left Bayern, and they always replaced them well. He would be a big loss, but it did not happen.” Bayern right-back and defensive midfielder Joshua Kimmich made the headlines last month when he started a decisive goal against rivals Borussia Dortmund, expanding his leadership at the top of the table to seven points. Martinez believes that the 25-year-old Germany international is destined to write his name in books on the history of the club. He knows how to lead. He will be a legend if he is already gone,” the Spain international said.

Bayern were fourth on the table when coach Niko Kovac was sacked in November and was replaced by interim boss Hansi Flick. They won 22 of the 25 matches they played under the 55-year-old, who signed a deal to stay on as head coach until 2023, and Martinez believes the former Germany assistant and Bayern are a perfect match. “He worked with Joachim Low for so long and learned a lot. Now we play similarly to the German team,” he said. “His character is perfect for a club like Bayern. He reminds me a lot of Vicente del Bosque in the form in which he is: a person who wants a player because he was alone, to understand the importance of being a team, which is necessary at all times”.
