Football of these days is very different. The lively sound of the stands filled with spectators in Germany disappeared. Only then was the performance of 22 players on the pitch trying to hear it clearly. Welcome to football in the Covid-19 era.
Many things change in the Bundesliga matches, Lewandowski’s danger is constant. On 23/5, the Polish striker marked the 27th goal this season with a goal against Eintracht Frankfurt. On all fronts, Lewandowski has scored 41 goals, the poorest one goal scored in the 2015/16 season.
Lewandowski is showing an impenetrable position at the Allianz Arena. Even at the age of 31, this spearhead still makes the rest of Germany admire. Number 9 cannot be prevented. The more sublime, the Polish striker suffered a great injustice, when he was forever someone who was never loved.
Talents are built on selfishness and arrogance
“Of course I was not selected to the list?”, Lewandowski answered Asian reporters on 20/5, when asked questions to name the five excellent strikers now. Number 9 always considers himself the best. And also because he always believes in himself, the Polish striker sometimes acts arrogant.
At Bayern, Lewandowski is not bored by anyone, even though it is Mats Hummels. They used to argue violently on the training ground. Going into the match, Lewandowski bluntly expressed dissatisfaction with Franck Ribery if he did not receive the correct pass. He was also selfish when he won the free-kick of David Alaba.
Lewandowski’s selfishness is not new. Once, the German media revealed that Kingsley Coman had all hinted that the 31-year-old striker was selfish and only thought about his number of goals. Another anonymous Bayern player described “Lewandowski as more personal than Arjen Robben”.
In Germany, not everyone loves Lewandowski. Borussia Dortmund fans call the striker the name “traitor”. Neutral fans saw the number 9 Poles as just “mercenaries”. “Six years ago, the Polish striker left Dortmund to Bayern. It was a decision for money. Lewandowski should have chosen Real or Chelsea,” ESPN journalist Stephan Uersfeld told Zing.
To describe Lewandowski’s attitude, one can use any negative words. Number 9 is a hot-tempered person, body language always expresses frustration, or complains and sometimes acts like a fool. The ego of former striker Borussia Dortmund is simply too big and sometimes makes everyone uncomfortable.
Pride has overwhelmed Lewandowski’s talent. At the end of the day, the 31-year-old striker still ignored all negative reviews to rise to become the world’s leading striker. This helps number 9 differentiate the rest. He is ready to face pressure and challenges to assert himself.
On the day Lewandowski had his 27th goal of the season, the moment of truth appeared at Allianz. Bayern owns the class-scoring assassin embodied in the number 9 shirt, who is talented and possesses a strong belief in himself. Lewandowski knows what his special qualities are.
Even when the world expressed doubts about Lewandowski, the 31-year-old striker still stood before the difficulties. Six years at Bayern, No. 9 proves his position inviolable. He constantly fired to become the club’s top goal scorer. Lewandowski has a great desire to score goals, always putting himself under a lot of pressure and ambition. He was selfish and arrogant, but that helped him burst.
Bayern is also the perfect environment to become a launch pad to raise Lewandowski’s career. Only in Munich, the new number 9 is best served. Bavarianfootballworks page analyzed that Thomas Mueller had to make many sacrifices to make a big discount for the Polish striker to shine. If not Bayern, Lewandowski will not get that far.
