Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski can break through the 40-goal barrier this season, Mario Gomez has said. Mario recently revealed that he believes the Polish footballer can emulate Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to set that record this year.
According to him, Lewandowski keeps ageing like fine wine, and it is surprising to see how well he has played without a preseason.
Gomez added that Lewandowski is definitely a consummate professional with an incredible understanding of his own body.
His words, “The fact that he is chipping away at Muller’s record in a season without much of a pre-season and under extreme strain is quite remarkable. It shows that he is a consummate professional with an incredible understanding of his own body.”
“I expected the 40-goal mark to fall at some point. Bayern have dominated the Bundesliga for years, just like Barcelona and Real Madrid in Spain – and there Messi has scored 50 goals in a season, Ronaldo 48. I wish Lewy many more goals, because you can’t replace that feeling with anything.”
“We strikers always want to score a goal. That’s just the way we were born. For us, there’s no greater feeling on the pitch than scoring a goal,”
“I had that feeling as a little kid when I was playing, and later in training and in games. And I think it’s similar with Lewy. He’s a striker through and through.”
“When I met him by chance recently, I said to him: ‘You’re one of those exceptional players who age like fine wine. Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.'”
“I trust him to continue playing at this level for another four or five years. It wasn’t like that for me in my mid-30s. I was a striker who lived on my dynamism, on the first few yards of pace, on power.”
“Lewy is completely different. He has everything in his repertoire. He’s not just a sprinter, he’s the most complete striker in the world. It’s crazy how easy he makes scoring goals look. I was at Bayern for four years myself and know how hard it is in reality.”
