Could it be anyone other than Robert Lewandowski? You tell us!

A category on Bayern Munich’s Most Outstanding Offensive Player? Uh...there might only really be one correct answer: Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski had a record-breaking season and has arguably been the best player on Earth for at least the past two seasons. However, it is possible that not everyone shares that opinion, so let’s see what our staff thinks and what YOU think as well...

Chuck Smith

  • Robert Lewandowski: Record breaker? Check. Unstoppable force? Check. The best player on Earth? Check. Yup, Lewandowski is the only correct call here.


  • Robert Lewandowski: It’s the only correct answer. Breaking a record that’s almost as old as my dad is pretty darn awesome, I’m glad I got to see him play in my lifetime.


  • Robert Lewandowski: Obviously! But, I want to share some love here; Serge Gnabry, despite his inconsistencies, is Bayern’s second most reliably goal-scorer I think and, when his goals dried up, Bayern suffered. His absence was most felt in a PSG tie he was needed desperately for. Jamal Musiala had a breakout season and should add more appearances to his name next season — I can see him as a natural successor to Thomas Müller in the future or at least as a backup option for the Raumdeuter. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting did an excellent job whenever called upon and rightfully earned himself a two-year extension. Kingsley Coman started like a player who had scored in a Champions League final but ran out of steam in the middle, finishing strongly nonetheless. Leroy Sané did not have a poor season considering it was his first and should display more of his talent next season.

Somehow, the BFW staff actually agrees on this one.

  • Robert Lewandowski: It isn’t even close. Lewandowski wins by miles for me. The world’s best footballer just can’t be snubbed. Lewandowski’s game has improved leaps and bounds over the years to the extent that I’m not sure there’s any area where he can improve even more (and I won’t be surprised if he’s even better next season). He somehow keeps breaking records and exceeding expectations. I honestly feel honoured that I live in an era that allows me to witness this phenomenon.


  • Robert Lewandowski: Undoubtedly, unquestionably it is the best number 9 in the world that takes this award by a long shot. 41 goals in 29 games, a phenomenal feat to break the legendary Gerd Muller’s record. It was an unforgettable season for the prolific Pole.

Teddy Son

  • Robert Lewandowski: Was there anyone else? He was officially announced the best footballer in the world last winter, and he’s proven that over and over by scoring one heck of a truckload of goals this season. The fact that he broke a forty year long record while only playing 29 league games is enough to call him the best goal scorer on the planet. Not every player can score 41 league goals in a single season. Bayern’s attack suffered when Lewandowski was not present, to the point that it cost them a place in the Champions League quarterfinals (curse you Andorra). Just a great season overall from the Poland captain.
