Robert Lewandowski is certain that the 2020/21 season will be the most challenging year of his and his teammates’ careers. Despite the evident challenges of this season, he believes that Bayern can repeat last year’s glory. “We did something big, but to go on successfully means forgetting about the past,” said Lewandowski in an interview with Xinhua.

To win the league is one thing, but now there will be a greater expectation since their treble victory. Not only is there additional pressure from higher expectations, but the Polish striker believes that each opponent will be fighting even harder. “Everyone will be desperate to beat Europe’s top team,” Lewy said in an interview with Xinhua.

He also suggested that Die Roten might have some tricks up their sleeve to get through the year. With 5 substitutions being available, Bayern fans should expect to see some young talent in our domestic fixtures. Hansi Flick has a plan and after last season, who could doubt him?!

Lewandowski also mentioned the developing players on the team, saying, “so many young players and all of them are as hungry as the established ones. You can feel it in every training session.” He added that each player must act responsibly as each player’s contribution will make a large impact on the success of Bayern’s season.

One player whose arrival has been highly anticipated is German international Leroy Sané. The Bundesliga’s top scorer last season sees an incredible amount of potential in their new arrival. Lewandowski also claims that he has already been pushing him to reach new heights. “I always try to push him to do things he didn’t know he can do. His potential is huge,” Lewandowski said.

It is looking like Lewandowski may finally get some well-deserved time on the bench since dominating the number nine for Bayern for years now. Talents like Joshua Zirkzee and Fiete Arp might both look to take some minutes away from the Poland striker so that he may rest in a packed season. This will be a unique season and one which will test the endurance and fortitude of each team. It is looking like Bayern is built to last. We will have to see how the remainder of the transfer window shapes up this side.
