Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann says Robert Lewandowski is “still the best forward in the world” after extending his scoring run to 19 consecutive competitive games on Saturday.
Following his double in the triumph over Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday, Lewandowski took his tally to nine in six outings this season when he prodded in the fifth of Bayern’s seven goals without reply at home to Bochum.
All of which has left Nagelsmann in no doubt as to where the striker ranks among the game’s elite. “He wants to score in every game,” the Bayern tactician told bundesliga.com after the final whistle.
“He’s so hungry to score goals and he’s so hungry to assist goals for his teammates as well. Today he had three or four great passes in the final third to create chances for his teammates, so in the end he’s still the best forward in the world and he’ll score a lot of goals for us this season as well.”
