LEWANDOWSKI EXTENDS BAYERN STAY

Robert Lewandowski has extended his contract with German champions Bayern Munich, according to reports.


The Poland international finally signed an extension that will tie him down until 2021.

The 28-year old Bundesliga striker joined Bayern from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. Since his move, Lewandowski has netted a whopping 86 times in 122 games. This season he had scored 19 already, making him one of the most lethal strikers in the game at the moment.

“I am very happy that the negotiations were successful. It means I will stay at Bayern for a few more years,” the Polish star said.

Lewandowski has been instrumental to the Bundesliga titles so far – aside three successive semi final finish in the Champions League. The German giant are bidding for their record five straight victories this season. They are currently sitting atop the league and are favourites to lift the title again despite the change in coach.

“I am happy that we managed to tie one of the best centre forwards in the world to the club for the long term. We have now guaranteed that another key player will continue to wear the Bayern shirt for the coming years,” club chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said after the deal was agreed between the club and the player’s rep.

Lewandowski was in the news recently for posting laughing emojis on his twitter page with reference to France Football’s Ballon d’Or poll results. Despite scoring 42 goals last term, the player was not voted the best in the Bundesliga as rival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ranked ahead of him. Aubameyang finished 11th overall while Lewandowski placed 16th.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or award, beating Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann to second and third place respectively.
