Karl-Heinz Rummenigge as CEO of Bayern Munich claims that there are similarities between the club’s flagship player, Robert Lewandowski, and the Portuguese mega star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Robert Lewandowski himself is one of Europe’s best strikers at the moment. In fact, some have rated the Polish player as the best 9 in the world today.
Naturally, this season his performance has been so impressive. Lewy has been able to score at least 40 goals per season for Bayern, since joining in 2014, except in his debut season, scoring only 24 goals.
Last season was the peak of productivity for the 32-year-old player, where he successfully scored 55 goals in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo, although 3 years older than Lewandowski, the Portuguese player shows no signs of declining performance due to his age.
Well, according to Rummenigge, these two strikers have something in common, they both build achievements and success with hard work, until they finally matched players with natural skills like Lionel Messi.
“We are talking about extraterrestrials,” Rummenigge said when talking about Ronaldo, to Tuttosport.
“Ronaldo lives for football, like Lewandowski. They train, eat and rest with one goal: to improve their performance and be their best. In the end, they are like Messi, “he added.
According to the CEO of Bayern Munich, these two figures are great examples for young players, how to generate success through hard work.
“They are role models for young people. They are champions and super rich, but every day they make sacrifices, because they want to win, “he said.
Rummenigge believes that both Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski still have a few more years to actively decorate the competition on the green field.
“He still has two years on his contract with Juventus and I hope two seasons at the top, then he will decide what to do,”
“I also saw Lewandowski on the field for a long time, that’s why we are not looking for a replacement.”
Lewandowski himself is currently under contract with Bayern Munich until 2023.
