Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski finishes first in the Goal 50 list.

Robert Lewandowski has been the most valuable player for Bayern Munich in the past 12 months. He has a strong case of being the best player in the world during that period. The Polish striker is rightly getting rewarded for his hard work and the goals he scored during the treble-winning campaign.

Lewandowski has finished first in the Goal 50 list for last season. Goal announced on Tuesday that the Polish striker had beaten some of the best players to finish first in this list. The former Borussia Dortmund striker has already won UEFA’s best player of the year award.

Along with Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, Alphonso Davies, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich, and Thomas Muller also featured in this list. Former Bayern midfielder Thiago Alcantara also got a mention for his stellar performances last season.

Lewandowski managed to score 55 goals across all competitions last season, including 15 goals in 11 Champions League games. He was the top scorer in the Bundesliga with 35 goals, while he found the back of the net five times in DFB Pokal.

More from Bayern Strikes

Apart from finding the back of the net consistently, Lewandowski was also playing a big role in creating chances for his teammates. He ended the season with ten assists across all competitions. The Pole has always been a team player, but last season his work rate was second to none in an efficient Bayern side.

There has always been criticism of Lewandowski for not scoring against big clubs in Europe. However, he silenced all critics emphatically by scoring in every game apart from the final against Paris Saint-Germain. Even in the final, his overall performance was superb, allowing Die Roten to constantly create problems for the French Champions.

Lewandowski has started the new campaign the way he ended last year. He has already scored 13 goals in 11 games across all competitions. The Polish striker has scored 11 goals in six Bundesliga games this season, showing no signs of slowing down despite turning 32.

It is so unfortunate that Lewandowski will not be getting Ballon d’Or this year. France Football decided to cancel the ceremony due to the pandemic. However, there is no doubt that the Polish striker would have won it comfortably due to his individual performances and team achievements. He is on course to have a similar season after an explosive start, so it will not be a surprise he emulates similar success this year.
