Ismaning (AP) - Karl-Heinz Rummenigge sees the newly crowned world footballer Robert Lewandowski in a position to attack Gerd Müller's historic Bundesliga record.

«I always thought that Gerd Müller's record of 40 goals would never be in danger again in his life.

Robert is also working on that, ”said the CEO of FC Bayern on Sunday in Sport1-“ double pass ”.

Müller scored 40 goals this season in the 1971/72 season.

Lewandowski has 17 goals after 13 match days.

Lewandowski was recognized as a world footballer that week.

In the last two Munich games of the triple year, he scored four goals for two 2-1 wins.

"It is like reassurance that you will win titles and win games like this at the last second," said Rummenigge.

«He is extremely ambitious.

I don't know any player who works more focused on his success than Robert Lewandowski. "

The 65-year-old Rummenigge also spoke about times when there was always a move from Lewandowski to Real Madrid.

That was not an option for the club, said Rummenigge.

With Lewandowski and world goalkeeper Manuel Neuer you have "the two best players in 2020".

The club also owes its success to other professionals.

He named Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich by name.

You have a "couple of mentality monsters".
