Germany manager Joachim Löw was in the house when Bayern Munich visited SC Freiburg on Saturday and witness Robert Lewandowski’s record-tying goal, which thrust the Polish Hitman further into Bundesliga lore.
Lewandowski, of course, scored his 40th Bundesliga goal of the season on a penalty kick, which tied him with the legendary Gerd Müller for the league record.
“It’s impressive to score such a number of goals. Nowadays it’s even more difficult than it used to be,” said Löw (as captured by Abendzeitung). “Gerd Müller was unique in Germany, but every record is broken at some point. At some point someone will come who is even better. That is how it is with all records. Even if Lewandowski scores 41 goals, this record may also be broken at some point. But to even come close to 40 goals in the Bundesliga is outstanding.”
Lewandowski will have one more chance to break the record as Bayern Munich will square off against FC Augsburg on Saturday.
