I Want To Play Until I Am 40 – Bayern Munich Striker Lewandowski
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says he wants to play until he turns 40 after reaching his “optimal level”.
Fifty-five of those efforts came in 2019-20, as Bayern stormed to their first treble success in seven years under the stewardship of Hansi Flick.
Lewandowski finished the campaign as the top goal scorer in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League, which the Bavarians won by beating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final.
It has been suggested that the Poland international, who recently turned 32, will soon start winding his career down, but he still believes he has plenty to offer at the highest level.
Asked whether he will stay at Bayern beyond the expiration of his current contract in 2023, Lewandowski told Kicker:
“It will not be my last. Ending my career at FC Bayern is an option, of course, but I still have so many years to go.
“I don’t think about the end of my career. I don’t feel like 32. I feel better than when I was 26. I’ve worked very specifically in recent years to reach my optimal level.”
Asked how long he could play on for, the Bayern superstar responded:
“Maybe eight years.”
