Robert Lewandowski has already cemented his status as one of the best goal-scoring strikers of all-time but he believes he can still take his game to a new level.

The 33-year-old broke the Bundesliga record last season with 41 goals despite featuring just 29 times en route to winning the European Golden Shoe.

Still, the Poland international is insatiable and continues to demand more from himself.

“That’s always an option and a possibility. Of course, when we talk about goals then you can maybe say there’s three, four or five goals more.

“But what I meant was there’s also the way of playing. Where can you improve? Where can I improve my movement, my creative play? Can I create a goal for a teammate in a situation?

“That’s also the direction I want to go in and improve because football isn’t just about goals.

“I also need team-mates. When the team plays well, then I benefit from that with goals. But I know that sometimes the team needs my help.

“In the end, we can only win as a team. That’s also the next step for me in my career, with my way of playing. There are a few things there to still improve.”

Despite his numerous individual accolades,

“I think the time when I can celebrate all my trophies is still to come.

“I know I can enjoy everything that’s happening now or to come, but I know tomorrow is a new day, off to training and the next game a few days later.

“Still, after such a nice day and nice moment and the nice words you’ve heard, you then need to put that aside for the next game and focus on your job.

“Of course, everything I’ve won – or we’ve won – isn’t the future. It’s already happened. The future is always a new challenge.

“For me personally, of course, I can sit on my sofa after my career and look at my trophies, just enjoy the time.

“Right now, I’m very proud, very happy, but I know the journey goes on.”
