How Lewandowski measures up to the Bayern greats

As he continues his quest to win the UEFA Champions League, Robert Lewandowski has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract with Bayern München, the Poland striker committing to the club until June 2021.

“I’m very happy the negotiations yielded a positive result and that I’ll stay at Bayern for a few more years,” said Lewandowski, whose existing deal was due to expire in summer 2019. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “I’m happy we have secured the services of one of the world’s best centre-forwards over the long term. We now know for sure that another key player will wear the FC Bayern shirt in the coming years.”

For the moment, the 28-year-old sits ninth in the Bavarians’ all-time rankings in terms of UEFA club competition goals – no small achievement given he only arrived from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. Moreover, with 58 goals in 77 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern, he is scoring at a ratio of 0.77 per game, though he has a way to go to equal Gerd Müller’s frightening strike rate of 0.88 per match – 398 goals in 453 outings in West Germany’s top division.
