Between 1997 and 2003, Elber spent six seasons with Bayern Munich. Having won the Bundesliga four times and once raised the Champions League. During his work with Bayern, the Brazilian scored 140 goals. Which is good for ninth place in the club’s scored chart for the whole time.
Elber told Lewandowski that he’s better than he was
Former Bayern striker Giovane Elber was a prolific scorer during his time at Bayern. But admitted that he told Robert Lewandowski that he is even more excellent than he was. Between 1997 and 2003, Elber spent six seasons with Bayern Munich. Having won the Bundesliga four times and once raised the Champions League. During his work with Bayern, the Brazilian scored 140 goals. Which is good for ninth place in the club’s scored chart for the whole time. Elber has admitted that his exploits are not equal to the exploits of the prolific Poland international. Which ranks second on the same busy schedule and the only trace of the Bayern legend Gerd Müller. “Robert told me that his father was a regular spectator of the Bundesliga and once told him: “You have to mirror this player, Giovane Elber,” the Brazilian told reporters.
Robert is a spectacular guy
“So I told him the following:” You are not equal, you are even better than me!’ The attention that he has is impressive, his calmness, and the person he is. He is a spectacular guy. “Lewandowski still has not reached everything at Bayern. Among the honors, he is still chasing are a Champions League title and Müller’s all-time Bundesliga record of 40 goals in a season. The Polish star was part of the Borussia Dortmund side that fell to Bayern in the 2012-13 Champions League final, while he had 30 goals in his Bundesliga career – which he reached in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Elber was quizzed on which achievement Lewandowski would have been easier to achieve and said that Mueller’s record could be closer to the 31-year-old than a European crown.
“I think it’s easier for him today to beat the record for goals scored in one season,” Elber said. “There are many games ahead, and I believe that he can achieve Gerd Muller’s record because he scores goals in almost every game.” The Champions League is more difficult, but I would be pleased if he could beat Gerd Muller’s record and also win the Champions League. “Lewandowski currently scored 25 goals in the Bundesliga in 2019-20 years, and Bayern intends to resume the season after a break related to coronavirus on Sunday when it goes to face Union Berlin.
