The 2019-20 Bundesliga top scorer Robert Lewandowski is “the best centre-forward in the world”, according to Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Lewandowski scored a second-half penalty as Bayern, already confirmed as champions for an eighth successive season, thrashed Wolfsburg 4-0 to finish their league campaign on a high.
That took Lewandowski’s tally for the season to 34 – six more than RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner – a figure that represented the Polish striker’s best ever return in Germany’s top flight.
It is the fifth time former Borussia Dortmund man Lewandowski has finished as the Bundesliga’s top scorer and he now has Gerd Muller in his sights, with the Bayern legend having finished as the leading marksman on seven occasions.
Indeed Muller is the only man to have scored more than 34 Bundesliga goals in a season, a feat he achieved on three separate occasions.
“To score 34 goals in one Bundesliga season is an incredible achievement,” Rummenigge told Bayern’s official website.
“Only ‘Der Bomber’, Gerd Muller, has ever scored more goals in one campaign.
“I’d like to congratulate and thank Robert Lewandowski. He is the best centre-forward in the world.”
