Lewandowski: goal machine

Bayern's current striker continues to find the back of the net with ease, despite the fact that the Bundesliga giants chose to remove their manager due to relatively poor results. He already has 16 goals to his name in the first 11 games of the campaign.

"You can't do any better," Rummenigge said after Bayern's 4-0 victory against rivals Borussia Dortmund on Saturday evening, where again their main man picked up a brace.

"I thought Gerd Müller's record was for eternity. But I think Robert is the first player who could get close and put it at risk," the chairman continued, referring to the record Müller set in the 1971-72 season.
