Typical Striker: Robert Lewandowski Blames Bayern Munich Teammates For Costing Him Bundesliga Top Goalscorer Award

Robert Lewandowski has all but accused his Bayern Munich teammates of costing him the Bundesliga top goalscorer award this season.

The Polish striker finished 2016/17 with 30 league goals to his name, leaving him just one goal behind Dortmund rival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the running for the Torjagerkanone – the ‘Goal Hunter Cannon’ award, as presented by Kicker magazine…

Despite Bayern winning the title by a million miles, the fact that he missed out on his individual prize still rankled with Lewandowki, who has blamed a lack of service for his very slightly inferior numbers.

While away on international duty with Poland, the 28-year-old told reporters:

It doesn’t hurt [to have missed out on the award] anymore, but it did at first.

Maybe because I wasn’t completely satisfied with the way my team helped me.

Immediately after the last game, I felt anger. I was disappointed with my team. That was the feeling I had.

How very magnanimous of him. Typical striker: Me, me, me.

Yes, it’s precisely that selfish mentality that has led him to become one of world football’s most predatory marksmen, but that doesn’t mean he’s not an annoying, conceited, self-obsessed little [redacted].

If only he’d have scored that gilt-edge, open-goal sitter against Werder Bremen on the opening day, eh?

    This is a not-so-subtle dig at Arjen Robben. You could see it quite often in games this season that Lewandowski thought Robben was to egotistical. And it goes both ways, when Robben was substituted and threw a tantrum that one time it was apparently because Lewandowski shot instead of passing a few minutes prior.
