Bayern Munich chief, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has made a huge claim, revealing that Robert Lewandowski's stunning form this season has him convinced that the Polish hitman is the best player in the world ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lewandowski has been the best striker in the world for the past two-three years and has continued his brilliant form this time around too, scoring a staggering 48 goals in just 40 games so far, while Messi has netted 38 goals in 47 games and Ronaldo 36 in 44 this campaign.
"He got the FIFA award for the best player in the world, so for me the case is clear. OK, great talents have emerged in world football, such as Kylian Mbappe. Nevertheless, Robert Lewandowski is currently the best footballer in the world," Rummenigge told Wirtualna Polska.
"In my opinion, he is currently better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi."
The 32-year-old has been key to all of Bayern's success in recent times, scoring 294 goals in 329 games in all competitions for them, leading the club to seven Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokal honours and the 2020 Champions League trophy.
