Bayern Munich has been blessed with remarkable performances from Robert Lewandowski in the past few seasons. The last couple of years have seen Lewandowski take his game to the next level, which has eventually helped Die Roten to win all possible trophies.

Lewandowski was unlucky to miss out on Ballon d’Or last season since France Football decided to cancel the award due to the pandemic. Despite the lack of this accolade, it was pretty clear that the Polish striker was the best player in Europe last season.

Even though he was desperate to leave the club in 2018, Lewandowski remained professional throughout the sage. Die Roten was fortunate that they eventually convinced him to sign a new contract and commit his remaining years at the top level to the club.

Along with making an impact on the pitch, Lewandowski has been a key figure in the dressing room. The Polish striker is also a role model for young players in the training session. While speaking to this week, Musiala reveals things that he has picked up by training with world-class forward like Lewandowski.

"“From Lewandowski, his mentality to keep wanting to score goals and keep pushing for more is what I can learn from and always giving me little tips on positioning and if I’m the 10, how we can play together and how to link up with one another. Little things that I can pick up and try to learn from a world-class player like Lewandowski is just an honour.”"

Working with the best striker in the world is going to improve Musiala as a player. The teenager took has been seamlessly integrated into the senior team at Die Roten this season. Musiala has scored six league goals this season, and one goal in the Champions League.

Along with taking technical aspects from Lewandowski’s game, Musiala will also learn how to be mentally strong and get through the tough time when there is intense criticism. Lewandowski was previously criticised for not delivering in big European games. He silenced those critics last season by scoring 15 goals in the Champions League. His absence was thoroughly felt when Die Roten bowed out of the European competition against Paris Saint-Germain last week.

The Polish striker will be making his return against Mainz later today. Lewandowski still has a lot to play for when he makes his return from injury on Saturday. The Polish striker can lift his seventh consecutive title with Die Roten by beating Mainz on Saturday.
