Polish international and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski won the 2021 European Golden Shoe award for his remarkable achievement as the continent’s top goalscorer for the 2020/21 season.

With 41 goals in 29 Bundesliga appearances, Lewandowski comfortably outscored second-placed Lionel Messi (30) and Cristiano Ronaldo (29).

Lewandowski also helped Bayern Munich to its ninth successive Bundesliga title.

“I have to honestly say that I am immensely proud,” Lewandowski said. “I’m very satisfied. In the season when I scored that historic number of goals – 41 goals – there was a moment when for the first time I didn’t think I could do it – because of the time when I was injured.”

“But then I just thought about it for a moment, that I am so near to that record! However many matches I have I got when I get back, I have to be positively and believe that I can score 41 goals, and in that way match Gerd Mueller, who is someone I admire very much. That is a great history.”
