The Polish Hitman will get some extra downtime.

Like many of his teammates, Bayern Munich star striker Robert Lewandowski participated in this summer’s European Championships before his Poland squad was eliminated in the Group Stage.

Lewandowski is also coming off a late season injury and the general wear-and-tear that a top-tier striker will endure during a condensed season. Because of that, the Polish Hitman will get a little bit of a longer break from new Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann per Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).

While his teammates will be grinding away under Nagelsmann, Lewandowski will not have to report to camp until July 26th, which should give him ample time to rest and recuperate after a strenuous 2020/2021 campaign.

This is a good thing for Lewandowski and Bayern Munich alike. One of the more intelligent and hard-working players in Germany, Lewandowski will be quick to assimilate to Nagelsmann’s strategies and the 32-year-old could also use the break.

Lewandowski might take more hits than anyone in the Bundesliga, so a couple of extra days of rest should serve him well.
