Leading the title chase is striker Robert Lewandowski, who understands and appreciates the magnitude of what Bayern Munich is trying to accomplish.
“I think if we win this Club World Cup it would complete one of the biggest historical achievements in all of football,” said Lewandowski to FIFA.com. “We know we are so close, but we have to stay 100-percent concentrated. It would be really special. Not just for Bayern or for Germany, but it would be one of the biggest historical achievements from all over the world.”
Lewandowski noted that COVID-19 has taken its toll on Bayern Munich and football in general, but thinks his team understands what needs to be done to make it through a hectic and condensed season.
“Now, because of COVID, we have to play almost every three days. It’s a big, big challenge for every team, not only for us. Usually you get one week, sometimes two weeks between games, and this is huge,” Lewandowski remarked. “We also know that we have the European Championship after this season. We have to be ready, we have to stay in form the whole season. This is the big challenge, but we are ready for it because we knew before the season started something like this could happen. If we have the chance to win something, we have to be strong, we have to be focused.”
The Polish Hitman will undoubtedly play a big role in leading Bayern Munich in this quest for yet another crown.
