Poland’s Lewandowski becomes fourth-highest scorer in Bundesliga history

Warsaw, Poland – Polish star striker Robert Lewandowski became the fourth-highest scorer in the history of the Bundesliga, the German top football league.

After netting a goal in Saturday’s match opposing his Bayern Munich team to Hoffenheim, the Polish star striker, one of the most prolific players in Central Europe of all time, has moved to become the fourth-highest scorer of the Bundesliga.

His 15th goal of the season after only seven games however wasn’t enough for Bayern Munich to avoid suffering its first defeat in the Bundesliga this year (1-2).

With 213 goals, the star striker is tied at the fourth place of the Bundesliga all-time scoring charts with Manfred Burgsmüller and only topped by German icons Gerd Müller (365 goals), Klaus Fischer (268 goals) and Jupp Heynckes (220 goals).

Earlier this year, the captain of the Polish national football team achieved the incredible feat of becoming the best non-German scorer of all-time in the Bundesliga’s 57-year history.

At only 31 years old, Lewandowski has topped the goalscoring charts of the Bundesliga league for several years, including last season, and is one of the top five scorers of the Champions League (56 goals in 82 appearances).

The Polish superstar, who has been playing in Germany since 2010, recently expressed worries about the recent transfer choices of the Bayern Munich, who bid farewell to such assets like Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez this summer.
