Lewandowski was born in Warsaw, Poland, and it was in that country he’d first start making a name for himself. Initially, he played in the lower leagues of Polish football as a teenager, making an impact that exceeded his age.
First Division Success
It soon became the talk of Polish football that a teenager was ripping up the lower leagues, and so the big sides inevitably came knocking. Lewandowski ended up signing for Lech Poznan in 2008 and instantly impressed, scoring the winner on his debut. His tally of 18 goals at the end of his first season wasn’t a bad way to introduce himself to the top flight.
Blackburn Rovers were reportedly on the cusp of bringing Lewandowski to the Premier League in 2010, but the 2010 eruptions of volcano Eyjafjallajökull saw numerous flights canceled and contributed to the deal falling through.
Moving to Dortmund
Blackburn’s loss was Dortmund’s gain as the German giants came swooping in shortly after, taking the young striker in for a reported $4.5 million. Lewandowski was initially expected to play the role of an understudy as his game developed, but he was soon thrown into the deep end as starter Lucas Barrios was hit by injury.
The Polish number 9 never looked back and soon became one of the best strikers in Europe, particularly impressing in Dortmund’s run to the 2013 Champions League final, with his four goals against Real Madrid in the semi-final going down in Dortmund history.
Bayern Come Knocking
As is often the case in German football, Bayern Munich soon realized their competitor had a special player, and in 2013 they capitalized on Lewandowski’s contract running out to sign him for free.
Over the next nine years, he would go on to break countless records for the club, becoming their record goalscorer as Bayern dominated German football and won the Champions League again in 2020. However, although he was the star of one of the modern game’s best-ever sides and collected personal accolades left, right and center, the Ballon D’or would never come his way, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo peaking in similar years.
A New Challenge
Having achieved all he could at Bayern Munich, in 2022, Lewandowski pushed for a move out of the club and signed for Barcelona in a $45 million deal. However, despite being arguably the most successful side of modern football, his move came at a moment of weakness for the Catalan club.
With the amount of quality he has, there’s no doubt Lewandowski will find the net many times for Barcelona, but will he be able to elevate back to the top of the game where they belong?
While his quality on the pitch has seen him score 76 goals for Poland, the lack of quality among his teammates means he’s never seen the same success on the international stage as at the club level.
