At the age of 32, one of the most consistent goalscorers of the modern era has just enjoyed his career’s best campaign to date.
Lewandowski insists that the current contract with Bayern will not be his last
Robert Lewandowski claims he has “so many years” left with the prolific Pole open to seeing his playing days at Bayern Munich as his current deal will not be his last. At the age of 32, one of the most consistent goalscorers of the modern era has just enjoyed his career’s best campaign to date. During the lengthened 2019-20 season, Lewandowski found the target on 55 occasions through 47 appearances. These efforts have helped Bayern to become the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and Champions League treble while seeing them as the leading contender for the FIFA Best award – with plans to hand out the Ballon d’Or, which has been postponed for 2020.
The Bayern Munich forward feels better than he did at 26
Lewandowski could be excused for starting to slow down at this point, having been at the very top of his career for over a decade, but the Poland international insists there is a lot more to do from him. The Bayern striker told journalists after being named Germany’s Footballer of the Year for the first time: “I don’t feel like I’m 32. I feel finer than I did at 26, not only physically, but also in terms of my football and technical ability. I am happy that I was able to do this, and I can play football at the highest level for even longer”. Lewandowski is tied to terms at Bayern Munich until the summer of 2023. But he already plans to close another deal after that date.
Lewandowski added: “My current deal is not my last. I want to perform even longer. I want to reach even more. My teammates in the club feel the same way. To end my career at FC Bayern is a choice, of course. But I still have so many playing years left in me, and I’m not thinking about retirement”. Lewandowski has been in the Bayern books since joining them as a free agent from Borussia Dortmund in 2014, with a remarkable 246 goals recorded for the Allianz Arena giants in 289 appearances.
