Munich (dpa) – top scorer Robert Lewandowski is for Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge “perhaps the best professional I’ve seen here”.
The question, Rummenigge said in an interview with “Welt am Sonntag,” is whether “Robert will be even better at 35 than Cristiano Ronaldo at 35. He’s a great role model for our young boys.” Everything, “his diet, his lifestyle,” is “focused on success” for 32-year-old Poland, Rummenigge (64) said. “Sometimes when I’m in the cabin and see his upper body, he’s just like Adonis. It could not be better.’
That is why Lewandowski deserves the election of World Footballer of the Year, for which there is no date yet, “like no other”. This year’s top scorer in the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB Cup had “played the season of his life. And he lives in Bayern Munich”, praised Rummenigge.
