Former Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber is a little worried that his old club might be, well, a little too good for the competition in the Bundesliga this season.

“Bayern decide the games in the players tunnel. Like last time against Leverkusen, that’s just too clear. It’s an unspectacular path for the Bundesliga. But what should Bayern do besides winning their games? You are five steps further than the others,” Badstuber told Bild.

Despite Badstuber’s concerns about competitive balance, the defender can appreciate the greatness of Robert Lewandowski and how he can impact a game.

“He’s incredibly difficult to stop. It takes a good goalkeeper and a perfect day. If he doesn’t score, he’s obsessed with changing that. This is what distinguishes great players. He is a prime example of professionalism. In the world he is one of the top three for me. Benzema is also a class striker. Mo Salah maybe still currently,” Badstuber said.
