Robert Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the finest centre-forwards of modern football.

The Polish international has been a goal machine for every club he has played for but his best, probably, came while with German giants Bayern Munich. 

A surprise move to Germany

In 2010, when a certain Sam Allardyce was in charge of Blackburn Rovers, head of recruitment Martyn Glover recommended Lewandowski to the Premier League side. The forward had completed the 2009-10 season with 21 goals for Polish club Lech Poznan a potential £4 million move to England was brewing.

However, volcanic ashes erupting from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull mountain cancelled most of the flights to the UK at the time and German side Borussia Dortmund pounced at the opportunity. The Black and Yellows hijacked the deal for the Poland forward in what would eventually turn into one of the best pieces of business done by the German side.

Lewandowski spent four seasons with Dortmund, scoring 103 goals across all competitions before moving to the BVB’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich in 2014.

Robert Lewandowski’s stats at Bayern Munich

Across his seven seasons with Bayern, Robert Lewandowski has scored a whopping 344 goals in 374 appearances for the German giants. While 238 of these came in the Bundesliga, 69 were scored in the UEFA Champions League.

Robert Lewandowski’s records at Bayern Munich

In only his second season with Bayern, Lewandowski set a Bundesliga record by scoring five goals in a mere 8 minutes and 59 seconds. He also scored Bundesliga’s fastest hat-trick (three goals in four minutes) and also set a Bundesliga record for most goals scored by a substitute (five).

The Poland forward was awarded four certificates by the Guinness World Records for this achievement; quickest hat-trick, 4-goal haul and 5-goal haul, and most goals by a sub.

Such has been Lewandowski's influence at Bayern Munich that it took him just two and a half seasons (137 games) to reach the century of goals for the Bavarians.
