Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge believes that Robert Lewandowski still has many years left in his career despite turning 32-years-old recently. The Polish striker enjoyed the best season of his career in the 2019-20 season, scoring a smashing 55 goals in 47 games and helping his club Bayern complete the infamous treble by winning the Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and the Champions League.
Despite his relative old age, Rummenigge still believes that Lewandowski will be able to perform at the highest possible level. “Lewandowski is perhaps the best professional I have ever seen here at Bayern,” the now-Bayern chairman told Welt am Sonntag. “He played the season of his life, and lives for Bayern Munich. At 35, Robert will be even better than Cristiano Ronaldo is at 35. He’s a wonderful role model for our younger lads.”
Rummenigge has been impressed with the way the Polish international’s professional behaviour on and off the pitch. “His diet, his lifestyle – it’s all geared towards success,” said Rummenigge. “The times when I’ve gone into the dressing room and seen his upper body – he’s like an Adonis. He’s as good as it gets.” One of the major factors in Lewandowski healthy life style is his wife Anna. She is a bronze-medalist winner at the Olympics for Karate and is a health, nutrition, and fitness expert.
