Robert Lewandowski has revealed he does not believe he needs to leave Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga to prove himself outside of Germany, scuppering the hopes of a number of top sides looking to sign him.
The Poland striker has been in extraordinary form in the past few years, helping Bayern maintain their stranglehold on German football while scoring more than 110 goals for the club in all competitions since the start of the 2019/20 campaign, including 41 in the Bundesliga last season.
His record in front of goal last term earned him the European Golden Shoe which he collected on Tuesday, and he took the opportunity to rubbish any rumours linking him with a move away from the Allianz Arena.
“I don’t have to prove myself in another league,” he said. “I can compete with the best from other leagues in the Champions League.
“I am 100 per cent focused on Bayern Munich, I don’t think about anything else but my team.”
