Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski might be the best player on the planet right now, but it does not mean he will be content with his game or his performances.

In fact, Lewandowski is constantly evaluating himself and what he can do better. Lewandowski recently talked about bringing his game to the “next level” — which is a scary thought considering his form.

“That’s always an option and a possibility. Of course, when we talk about goals then you can maybe say there’s three, four or five goals more. But what I meant was there’s also the way of playing. Where can you improve? Where can I improve my movement, my creative play? Can I create a goal for a teammate in a situation? That’s also the direction I want to go in and improve because football isn’t just about goals,” said Lewandowski to Bundesliga.com. “I also need teammates. When the team plays well, then I benefit from that with goals. But I know that sometimes the team needs my help. In the end, we can only win as a team. That’s also the next step for me in my career, with my way of playing. There are a few things there to still improve.”

Lewandowski’s team-based thought-process is enlightening in these “me first” days. And for the Polish Hitman, that mentality comes after a period earlier in his career where it looked like he might be headed down that path.
