In the past few weeks, the name Erling Haaland has been thrown into the room again and again when it comes to a potential successor to Robert Lewandowski at FC Bayern. Although the Pole is playing at an excellent level in his seventh season at Bayern, he will be 33 years old this summer. Lewandowski does not want to participate in the speculation about Haaland.
“He’s a Borussia Dortmund player and I can’t say anything about his plans,” said the FCB star in the Sports picture, but added great praise to his competitor: “What I can say is that he is a very good player.”
When asked about a possible interaction with the Norwegian youngster in the Bayern storm, Lewandowski replied: “This question does not arise, he is a player from Borussia Dortmund.” Haaland is still under contract there until 2024, but after 31 goals in 30 competitive games this season, the BVB star is associated with a move to a top club. However, Haaland should prefer abroad to a change within the Bundesliga.

How long Robert Lewandowski (32) will continue to storm for Bayern is currently still open. His contract with the German record champions is dated until 2023, and there is no sign of a drop in performance with what is currently by far the best striker in the Bundesliga (32 goals). “I can very well imagine ending my career at the highest level at Bayern,” said Lewandowski Sports picture.
However, the Pole also emphasized: “But it is still a bit early. In addition, the board of directors, the presidium must also judge.” But he feels “very comfortable” with Bayern and the relationship with his teammates is good. “The mentality in the whole club is: keep going, keep going, always stay hungry. If something works so well, you shouldn’t separate it,” said Lewandowski.
“I know that a lot of people look at my age. But to be honest: I feel better than when I was 26 or 27,” said Lewandowski. “I’ve continuously improved my body since then and I’m a more experienced player today. Or, to put it another way: I’m a better player today than six years ago.” It is difficult to say how long he can still play at this top level, “but I definitely trust myself to keep my level for several years – at least!”
According to his own statement, he has not yet set his sights on a potential successor for himself at Bayern: “There are great strikers at the moment, but I cannot say today who would be my perfect successor at the time x.” In addition to his 32 goals in the Bundesliga, Lewandowski also scored four goals in the Champions League and two in the Club World Cup. He has 38 goals in 34 competitive games this season.
