During the bout between Barcelona and Bayern, fans welcomed the appearance of Lewandowski on the grass with loud ovations and cheers. The player commented on it by saying that he feels gratitude for such a warm welcome and that he believed it was respectful and important to him. The game ended with Barcelona’s defeat and Bayern scoring two goals against none. However, Lewandowski left the field as a winner.
The legend of Munich
The player has been instrumental in many victories of the Munich football club. His record is more than just impressive. Over 8 years at Bayern, the striker from Poland appeared on the field 375 times and scored 344 goals with his best season being 2020-2021 when he achieved the title of European Golden Shoe and was the frontrunner for the Ballon d’Or award that was canceled.
He surpassed many outstanding players to set new records including the new fastest 21st goal in Bundesliga history after scoring it during the 16th game of the season. The FIFA magazine called him the best player of 2020. Lewandowski has been bathing in glory during the last decade and continues to impress fans with incredible performances.
After 8 years with Bayern and many titles lifted alongside his colleagues in Munich, the player moved on and transferred to Barcelona where he has already recouped the team’s investments by scoring 6 goals during his 5 appearances in regular season games. So far, his interleague appearances were less impressive but Barcelona has been struggling ever since releasing Lionel Messi and Lewandowski’s inability to turn the tables in Europa League is unlikely his fault.
Fans in Munich still love Lewandowski
Despite his controversial actions in the past, Robert Lewandowski is regarded as one of the greatest players of Bayern. His immensely rich history with the club is something that cannot be erased and the loud cheering of his name during his appearance in the match between his new team and his former team proves that fans’ love transcends clubs and national teams. They simply love great players who brought them joy and continue supporting them even when they move to other teams.
