Robert Lewandowski made history last season by becoming the first player to break Gerd Muller's nearly 50-year-old goal-scoring record. The 32-year-old Polish star scored 41 Bundesliga goals for Bayern Munich, which not only helped him write his name in the history books but also earned him his sixth Torjägerkanone prize. Only Muller, with seven has won more. Lewandowski, who has been the subject of transfer speculation all summer, also won his fourth Torjägerkanone award in a row - a feat no player has ever achieved so far in Bundesliga history.
And now, fans are set to learn what exactly made the Warsaw-born striker the superstar he's become today. Thanks to an innovative collaboration with Amazon Prime Video, those closest to Lewandowski, including family, friends, and teammates, will be able to add some insight into what makes one of the world's no. 9's tick.
Lewandowski himself is naturally quite excited about the upcoming documentary, which is set to come out sometime in 2022. On the topic of this project, he noted that "We would like to share the story of highs and lows, strengths and weaknesses without any filters - to present the history as it truly happened.
"The documentary will present many aspects of my career which football fans find interesting. However, I hope those viewers who don't regularly follow football will also appreciate all these little details.
"I would like the documentary to become an inspiration for those kids who dream of achieving something big but they don't believe they can."
