Club: FC Barcelona
The Polish striker is notable for his propensity for scoring goals. Inside the box, he possesses all the tools necessary to make him a challenging striker to read because he is equally adept at finding the goal with both feet and his head.
Because of his technical abilities, he can also link up well outside of the box. Lewandowski will strengthen the Barça attack with his goals, expertise, and experience.
The striker joined Barça in the summer of 2022 after spending eight years at Bayern Munich. Lewandowski ranks second on the Bundesliga’s list of top scorers and is one of the top five scorers in the history of the Champions League.
Lewandowski, who was born on August 21 in Warsaw, Poland, began his career at Legia Warsaw. He made his professional debut in the young teams at Znicz Pruszków in 2006, where he twice finished as the league’s top scorer.
No player in the history of the team has ever had such an immediate impact in terms of goals scored; his eight La Liga goals to this point have surpassed the previous high for the team at this point, which was the six goals scored by former Brazilian striker Romario.
He then transferred to Lech Poznan in the Polish first division, where he led the league in goals scored in 2009–2010. He moved to Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2010, where he won the German league twice and earned a runners-up medal after Jurgen Klopp’s team lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.
Lewandowki’s next stop was none other than Bayern Munich, where he quickly established himself as a key member of the victorious Bavarian team. The Polish striker with Bayern won everything in 2020, including the Champions League and the German Cup, where he finished as the competition’s leading scorer with 15 goals. He also won the Bundesliga title.
The striker won the title of “The Best” twice, in 2020 and 2021, as a result of his steady goal production.
Lewandowski, who made his national team debut in 2008, currently holds the record for most goals scored by a Polish player with 76, much surpassing Wodzimierz Lubanski, who is in second place with 45.
What makes the all-time leading scorer for Bayern Munich so unique? Lewandowski has excellent aerial presence and is at ease shooting with either foot. He has used his right foot to score 123 of his Bundesliga goals, but he has also managed to use his left to score 36 times and nod in 24 goals with his head.
On occasion, the 30-year-old will even try his hand at long range. While he drove in from 25 yards for goal number two of his historic five-goal outburst against Wolfsburg in September 2015, his second Bundesliga goal for Bayern was a magnificent half-volley against Paderborn from just beyond the box.
In a nutshell, Lewandowski is the complete striker. He can combine with his attacking midfielders, hold up play, take on defenders, latch onto balls over the top, play on the ground or in the air – and score goals of all shapes and sizes, with both feet and his head. A natural poacher with a flair for improvisation, he is surely one of the best the Bundesliga – and the world – has ever seen.
Lewandowski’s early Polish trainers were worried about his frail build and stumpy legs, which demonstrates how much he has improved physically. He spent many hours in the gym to increase his strength and get an edge on the field, earning the nickname “The Body” during his time with Dortmund. His wife Anna, who is a well-known sports nutritionist, has offered priceless tips on dieting and training.
