Opinion - Lewandowski Welcomes A Liverpool Challenge

This could be an acquisition that will throw the game of soccer into a frenzy. Imagine the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Robert Lewandowski spearheading Liverpool's attack? This isn't a fantasy but could possibly become a stark reality. The good news is that Jurgen Klopp did manage Lewandowski at one stage. Klopp and Lewandowski worked together at Borussia Dortmund between 2010 and 2014. Klopp wants a clinical finisher upfront who can hold his own and then some. Klopp said this regarding Lewandowski, "What he has made out of his potential, how he pushed himself to become the player he is today, that's extraordinary. Lewy took every step he needed to take to be that goal machine. Everyone!" It is believed that Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern Munich with an intention of finding a new club before he turns 34 in August 2022. Age is nothing but a number - ask Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo? Lewandowski scored 304 goals in 335 matches at Bayern Munich in his seven year spell. He won the Bundesliga seven times and once the Champions League.

When Lewandowski played under Klopp, he scored 102 goals in 186 appearance's. Lewandowski mentioned, "Age, these are just numbers. I feel very good, I have the best stats. I've worked hard. I know that with my body I can play at the top level for years to come. I'm like good wine and I hope to get even better." Lewandowski is a nightmare for the opposition defences. It's no wonder why he earned the European Golden Shoe Award beating Messi and Ronaldo. Pini Zahani, Lewandowski's agent told Sport Bild, " Robert feels that he needs a change and a new challenge in his career. Those responsible at Bayern know about it. Robert's motives are not (about) money or a specific club, because all the top clubs would like to have the best striker in the world in their ranks."
