When Robert Lewandowski failed to score in two consecutive Bundesliga games for the last time, Hansi Flick had only just started his job as Bayern coach. That was 22 months ago and since then only minor injuries have slowed the Pole.

The reigning FIFA world footballer has been waiting for a goal for two league games, and he wants to end the “lull” on Sunday (3:30 pm, LIVE! At kicker) in Leverkusen. In order to then prepare for the award of the Ballon d’Or on November 29th.

If it is up to coach Julian Nagelsmann, he also clears this award – which he would probably have received last year (award was canceled) – also from: “He would have deserved the Ballon d’Or,” Nagelsmann said in an interview with the “Abendzeitung” “. “And in my opinion he has to win the award too, as he has played more consistently than anyone else over the past three years.”

If his body stays like this, it is far from over.

Although neither the Ballon d’Or nor the election for FIFA World Player in Constance will be awarded over a period of several years. Speaking of which: Nagelsmann believes his number 9 will continue to be at this level for several years: “If his body stays like this, it is far from over. He is extremely dynamic, has no injuries, he can train a lot: I definitely trust him that he will play at top-top level for a few more years – also because he aligns everything in his life to be in top shape. ”
