Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski reached a monumental achievement against SC Freiburg in tying Gerd Müller’s Bundesliga goal scoring record.

Now with 40 goals, Lewandowski is poised to write his own chapter of the league’s history and the moment has not been not lost on the Polish Hitman.

“It’s a great honor. For me, but also for the modern history of the Bundesliga in Germany. That makes me happy. It was a legendary record that lasted for a long time,” Lewandowski said (as captured by Tz). “What Gerd Müller did was incredible. I never thought that I could manage to have a record with him. I am very proud and still can’t believe it. I still need some time. The record belongs to the whole team. Not only my name is on the list, but that of the whole team.”

As for breaking the record, Lewandowski lamented not getting the job done today, but is looking forward to chasing at least one more goal against FC Augsburg next weekend.

“I still had the opportunity to score one or two more goals today, but we still have one game. Maybe I’ll succeed there,” said Lewandowski.
