    The German tactician worked with Lewandoski when he signed for Borussia  Dortmund in 2010 for a fee reported to be €5 million from Polish club Lech Poznan and went on to win a league double in his first two seasons, a Champions League final loss to Bayern Munich in 2012/13.

    Lewandoski made 187 appearances for Dortmund all under Jurgen Klopp scoring 103 goals with 42 assists to his name. The two formed a good understanding as Lewandoski describes their relationship as beyond just football as he’s like a great coach and a caring father on the other.

    “I think Jurgen Klopp [is my favorite] and after that Pep Guardiola. 100 percent.

    “[Klopp] has two faces. You can see that he is kind of like a father, but the second part is like a coach, a manager.

    “He can tell you everything- and I’m not speaking about the good things- about the bad things.

    “Also, for [players], he is a huge motivation. He makes this perfect, because he knows where there is a line where he can [push you] more or a little bit less.

    “His performance as a coach is amazing, but not only as a coach but also as a man.”


    Treble Hunt

    Lewandoski finished the Bundesliga as the top scorer with 34 goals, and his team is hoping to win a treble with the league and DFB Pokal cup already won, they play London side, Chelsea, in their next Champions League game with a comfortable 3-0 lead from the 1st leg result. The striker is also the leading goalscorer with 11 goals in the Champions League.
