The start of the week has been monumental and memorable for Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker was awarded the Golden Boot award for his goalscoring exploits from last season. Bayern Munich had organised a special ceremony to felicitate their talismanic striker.

Lewandowski scored 41 Bundesliga goals last season, making him the top scorer in the top leagues across Europe. Despite missing few games in the final third of the last campaign, the Poland international comfortably won the golden boot.

Along with being outright top scorer in the Bundesliga, Lewandowski also broke Gerd Muller’s record of most goals in a single Bundesliga campaign. The Polish striker had scored in the dying minutes of the final league game of the last season to break Muller’s record that stood for so many decades.

Jurgen Klopp and Hansi Flick had special messages for Lewandowski during the Golden Boot program on Tuesday. The 33-year-old forward enjoyed a lot of success under both managers. During the felicitation function for the Golden Boot award (via Sky Sport), Lewandowski insisted that he wants to enjoy more success in Bavaria. The Polish striker also dismissed the suggestion that he has something to prove in another top European league.

"“I don’t have to prove myself in another league.”“I can compete with the best from other leagues in the Champions League. I am 100 per cent focused on Bayern Munich, I don’t think about anything else but my team.”"

During the summer transfer window this year, one report suggested that Lewandowski is interested in experiencing a new challenge in his career. However, German media outlets reported that the Polish striker is waiting for a new deal from Die Roten. His current contract will expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

As per Bild, Lewandowski is the top earner in the wage structure at Rekordmeister. The German club will have to carefully plan about new contract renewal as Lewandowski will be 34 next season. The Poland international will be looking for one final big contract in his career.

From a sporting perspective, Lewandowski is showing no signs of slowing down. He is confident about playing at the top level for four more years. The Polish striker boasts a very good fitness record, so it will not be a surprise to see him play at the top level for a longer time.

There is likely to be a strong case for Lewandowski to be in the conversation for the golden boot this season. He has started the new campaign in the best possible way with 11 goals across all competitions by mid-September. If he keeps scoring for fun, there is no doubt that a new contract will be offered by the club sooner rather than later.
