At the latest after the disappointing semi-final against Real Madrid and the bloodless performance at the World Cup in Russia, it is clear that the other top European clubs are refraining from signing Robert Lewandowski. Now FC Bayern has to get the striker afloat again for the big goals.
If Niko Kovac has his way, “Lewy” will “still achieve a lot” for the German record champions. The success coach from Frankfurt should help the striker back to top form. And eliminate the lack of not convincing in the important games.
We fondly remember the 2012/2013 season, when Lewandowski in the dress of BVB Real Madrid single-handedly finished with four goals in the semi-finals. He embodied all the attributes of a world-class attacker, coupled with the irrepressible desire to achieve even more. There was hardly any evidence of that at Lewandowski in the past few months.
Since July 2nd, FC Bayern has been working towards a successful start to the season. After just a few units, the Munich players realized. A different wind is blowing under new coach Niko Kovac.
He has been chasing goals for FC Bayern since 2014. 151 goals in 195 competitive games – a gigantic quota. It couldn’t be better in the Bundesliga – but in the premier class it could. Bavaria last triumphed in 2013 – without Lewandowski, but with Mario Mandzukic, whom many fans would rather like back today.
