Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has considered the possibility of winning the UEFA Champions League with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, noting that “It would be a wonderful feeling”.
Lewandowski and his Bayern side will be hoping to push through Spain barrier having been foiled by as they Spanish sides in their last two UEFA Champions League semi-finals when they take on Atletico Madrid.
With eight goals in the UEFA Champions League and a personal best of 27 in the Bundesliga, Lewandowski hopes it’s about the time he wins the continent’s top club prize to bury the disappointing 2013 memory when he lost in the finals to his current employers while playing for Borussia Dortmund.
“Despite being probably the only team around capable of beating Bayern, we didn’t. He recalls the 2013 episode. “It’s not a nice feeling – particularly when we were so close to winning. So it hurts, of course. I still believe I will be able to win it one day. It would be a wonderful feeling and I will do my best to experience it.
“It has been a very decent season. I hope to score a few more important goals and I hope to win some trophies, but I’m happy to be scoring so many. Both Poland and Bayern have been playing really well this season, but it’s not over yet – there’s still a lot to do. I train hard every day and look to get better. Regardless of how many I’ve scored, I still want more.
“It would be amazing if we could bid farewell to Pep Guardiola by winning the Champions League – it would be the icing on the cake after all the time we’ve had together at Bayern. I hope it happens. Everyone chooses their own path, their own direction – and everyone knows that when one door closes, another opens. But we want to win every single match until the end of our time with Guardiola. We want to be celebrating until the end.” Lewandowski told UEFA.com
