The football career of Robert Lewandowski:
Robert Lewandowski grew up in a sporty all-around family. Both parents are competitive athletes and therefore excellent role models for their sons. Robert Jr. first stepped onto the soccer field when he was 8 years old. At first, he played in many local leagues in Warsaw. In the 2007/2008 season, he played in the second Polish league and became the top scorer there. That was so impressive that the Pole was able to sign a four-year contract with a top club in the summer of 2008. Robert Lewandowski signs with Lech Posen. In December of the same year, the smart striker was also named “Rookie of the Year”, which gradually made him known to all of Poland. In 2009 he was even nominated for Poland’s “Footballer of the Year” but failed to secure the title.
Bundesliga and Dortmund:
Only in the summer of 2010 was Robert Lewandowski able to switch to the Bundesliga. There he found his way to Dortmund, who signed him for 4.75 million euros. His contract runs until the summer of 2014. In his first season with the Bundesliga club, Robert Lewandowski scored 8 goals in 33 of his possible 34 Bundesliga games and helped his team win the Bundesliga title. In 2012, this time Robert Lewandowski even contributed 22 goals to the third-best scorer. At the same time, the striker has also become the Polish top scorer in the entire Bundesliga. His compatriot Janftok scored just 20 goals in 1990/91, giving Lewandowski a clear lead.
Above all, the 2012 DFB Cup final, which his current club Bayern Munich will probably remember. At that time, Robert Lewandowski scored 3 goals that helped Dortmund beat Munich 5-2 and earned the club’s first double for Dortmund. In the 2013/14 season, the Polish footballer was again top scorer in the Bundesliga with a total of 20 goals.
Uli Hoeneß wanted to sign Lewandowski in 2013, but Dortmund did not want to let the player go before the end of the contract. A free transfer to FC Bayern in 2014/15 should have brought him a considerable amount of real money. With his new club, the striker was able to become German champion again in 2015, so he has now won several titles in Poland and Germany. September 22, 2015, was a very special day for the footballer.

In Bavaria, he worked with Thomas Müller on the “Duo Müllandowski”, as well as with Uli Hoeneß and Gerd Müller. Moreover, Coutinho’s reinforcement in 2019 will make the striker even better. After winning several titles, the Poles are still missing the Champions League for a long time. He fulfilled this dream at the Corona final on August 23, 2020, in Lisbon.
