Bayern Munich Striker Robert Lewandowski Wins European Golden Shoe
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.”
