Hansi Flick who won the treble with Bayern Munich last season including the UEFA Champions League will leave Bayern Munich this summer and he will be replaced by the coach of RB Leipzig, Julian Nagelsmann.
Though Robert Lewandowski was already a high-scoring striker before Hansi Flick became the coach of Bayern Munich in 2019, the Polish striker exploded under the German coach during 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 season.
This season, the Polish striker did even more in the league. He did so well that he scored a whopping 41 league goals in 29 games this season. This made him the first player in German Bundesliga to score more than 40 goals in one season. He broke the record of Gerd Muller which was set during the 1971-1972 season.
After Bayern Munich were crown champions of the Bundesliga, Robert Lewandowski took to Instagram to share a picture where he was celebrating the win. In the caption, the Polish striker dedicated the triumph to the outgoing coach of the club, Hansi Flick.
He wrote: “Another season, another #bundesliga title 😎🏆 I would like to dedicate this trophy to Hansi Flick – as a team we won everything and we wrote an amazing history for @fcbayern 🤜🤛Thank you for your work, you are not only a great coach, but most of all a great person🙏 I am sure you will continue to achieve great success. Good luck Hansi!”
Before he took to Instagram, he told the press that the 90th-minute goal he scored in Bayern Munich’s 5-2 win in their last league game of the season which was against Augsburg was dedicated to his mother.
The 90th-minute goal on Saturday was Robert Lewandowski’s 41st-minute league goal of the season which is the highest number of goals a player has ever scored within a season.
“I want to dedicate this goal to my mother, it’s her birthday today,” Lewandowski said on BT Sport.
“I never dreamt about breaking this record. I thought it was impossible, 40 goals in 34 games. And I played 29 games. I still don’t believe what I did. It is something special and historic.”
Robert Lewandowski also took time to praise Gerd Muller who was the first player to score 40 goals within a season in the Bundesliga, a record Lewandowski broke in Bayern’s 5-2 victory over Augsburg on Saturday.
“I have big respect for him, the kind of person he was as I’ve heard a lot about him,” Lewandowski said.
“I am sure that he is proud of me as well as he knows what it means to score so many goals.
“I am happy to be on the same table as him.
“There is only one Gerd Muller and only one Lewandowski.
“This record also belongs to my team, for football and the history of football.”
