Robert Lewandowski is undoubtedly one of the best talents that Poland have ever seen when it comes to the footballing world, as the player who comes from a country that is hardly renowned for it’s football has become one of the greatest strikers in the world in the modern generation.
This has ultimately been reflected in Lewandowski’s domination of the Polish footballer of the year award competition over the past few years, and this hasn’t changed as the forward has recently been given the prize for a 6th consecutive season.
However, it’s an award that seems pretty fair, as Lewandowski had yet another great footballing calendar year for both club and country over the course of 2016: He scored 47 goals in total across the year, won the Bundesliga, German Cup and German Supercup at club level, and helped Poland to the last 16 of the Euro’s in the summer – all round, a pretty good achievement for the 28 year old.
However, it seems the novelty of the award hasn’t yet completely worn off for Lewy, tweeting his delight:

With the striker almost undoubtedly set to lead the line for Bayern week in week out, we can hope that he performs for the side on Tuesday night when Bayern take on Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal, in the hope of continuing a cup run this season.
