Bayern munich forward, Robert Lewandowski feels that his counter-part at Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has more burden of goalscoring than him because his teammates at the Allianz Arena shares scoring responsibilities.
The Gabonese star is currently on top of the Bundesliga scoring chats with 17 goals closely followed by the Polish international with 14 strikes but unlike Dortmund the league leaders have Thomas Muller on 13 goals.
Lewandowski believes that for Aubameyang to maintain his prolific start to the campaign he will have to cope with a tremendous amount of pressure because his teammates don’t contribute as much goals.
“Aubameyang has already scored 17 goals, but it’s sometimes one game where everything can change,” Lewandowski said. “At Bayern we have many more offensive players who can score goals, so I have no pressure to score a lot.
“At the moment it is too early to tell how many goals you need [to be top scorer] – 14 or 17 are too few. I think you have to double that if you want to be the top scorer.”
Lewandowski also praised his partnership with German international Thomas Muller upfront and hopes the manager Pep Guardiola plays them regularly together.
“If we play together, we work together very well on the pitch and I like playing with him very much. If I play with him I can close my eyes and pass the ball to him,” he added.
“If I play in the centre and five or six defenders try to get the ball from me, I know that Thomas gets in the right positions and I can pass the ball to him.
“And if he has the ball, I have more space on the pitch because the defenders attack him. If we play together as a duo we could score more goals. I would be very pleased with that.”
Lewandowski was recently recognised with four Guiness World Records following his five-goal haul in nine minutes against Wolfsburg in a Bundesliga game earlier this season.
