  • Others: Calvert-Lewin, Firmino, Neymar, Oblak, Rakitic & Richarlison
  • Former players: Baresi, Cafu, Matthaus, Milla, Taffarel & Xavi

“Pele revolutionised football. Pele stopped a war. Pele united countries, united families. There was no race problem, language problem. I was born in 1970. In 2002, I became a world champion. I was captain. I had the honour of receiving the World Cup Trophy from no less than whom? Pele! Man! If I say any more I’ll cry. It’s really emotional!”
Cafu

“In Pele’s 80 years, the only thing that’s missing is to land on the moon. When there’s football on the moon, I’ll go there and have a little kickaround.»
Pele

“One hundred per cent football. He’s on another level. With all respect to the other greats, there’s only one number one – it’s Leo. To play 311 games next to him, it was a dream. I enjoyed it so, so much. I just want to say this: ‘Thank you for everything, Leo, because you’ll never know how much it meant to me to play next to you.’”
Ivan Rakitic on Lionel Messi

“He’s a phenomenon. He’s already got everything, and at such a young age. He’s already a leader. He’s quick, robust and makes the right runs. He’s got the passion. He’s got everything a top-class striker needs.At some point he’ll follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo or Lewandowski. He’s already got a lot of attributes that others didn’t have at 20.”

“Maradona. I’m a big fan of Maradona. The way he played was such a pleasure to watch – the way he fought for his team on the pitch, his incredible technique. If you say anything against Messi, you need a bullet in your head. Look at what he does for Barcelona. His statistics are astonishing. He’s a phenomenon. I don’t like to make comparisons. Both had their own time. Maradona was the best and now, without doubt, Messi is the best in the world. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been on a different level for years. I don’t like to compare, but it was a joy to watch Maradona.”
Taffarel in August on the best player he’d seen in his life

“Kylian is a phenomenon. He has the potential to become one of the best players in history. To have him as a team-mate is a huge honour. We understand one another very well on the pitch and off it too. I love him!”

“That feeling of seeing the No9 next to my name in the dressing room and pulling on the England shirt, it was absolutely amazing. Then going on the pitch and scoring… it’s emotional, you think about how proud your family will be. It’s something I want more of. I’m addicted. I want to lead the line for England in major competitions and be the man they rely on to score goals.”
Dominic Calvert-Lewin

«You look up to him obviously, but when you start sharing things with him, he is so transparent that, instead of telling him what you think of him, you feel more like asking him about his little kids or of reminding him of the time he took you out with his studs up in a Valencia-Barcelona game (laughs). When he becomes your captain, you’d go to war for him if he asked you to.»

“Football can arouse similar feelings to those that fire you up in an opera theatre, in some ways. In its sense of ritual, in its capacity to attract healthy fanaticism and hyped-up tribalism, football also projects life into the experience of the game. It invokes challenges to the death, impulses of generosity and heroism, fatal mishaps and magnificent victories. A game that thrills and moves, that unites and divides.”
Andrea Bocelli

“I don’t like it, but only because Magda’s so annoying as a defender! Honestly, once we’re on the pitch, it’s not an issue. I forget about the fact she’s my girlfriend, and she’s the same. She definitely doesn’t hold back!”

“He’s phenomenal. You simply can’t say that he’s not a magician. He has magical powers. He produces plays that don’t exist, that you couldn’t make up. You always have to watch replays of his plays to understand what he’s done. He’s an unbelievable player. He’s one of the very best players in the world.”
Firmino on Philippe Coutinho

«You couldn’t describe it. There was a lot of joy obviously. We would have loved to have gone further because we really had what it took to do more. I’m convinced we could have gone all the way. We were welcomed as heroes when we returned to Cameroon and that was when you realise that you’ve achieved something big.»

«Absolutely incredible. What an experience. My family and I attended many of the games as well as the Final.

“That feeling of knowing you have made history is incredible. I remember the celebrations vividly, having the cup in our possession and travelling on a convertible bus through Madrid.

“I hope they don’t all get taken from me! While [Robert] Lewandowski broke my record for the most goals (scored by a foreigner in the Bundesliga), they’ll have a hard time getting the record for the oldest Bundesliga player to score a hat-trick off me!”

«It’s my trademark! Of course I’ve imagined doing the pigeon dance in the World Cup. The supporters really like it, it especially appeals to kids. I’ve done it for the Seleção together with Neymar, I do it for my club, and I want to score goals and do it many times at the 2022 World Cup.»
Richarlison

«Real football fans know how important defenders are and they appreciate them. If I had to name names, then the one who really stands out is Virgil van Dijk, who’s shown the quality, character and strength that a defender needs to have to be a successful leader of a team like Liverpool.»

“Even though I understood after the World Cup that things couldn’t get any better, unless we win the EURO, I felt I owed it to our team and our fans to stay, because those fans showed so much affection and love towards the players – and myself. I believe that other job offers will always be there, but being in this position – trying once again to bring unbelievable happiness to your country – is priceless.”

“At Arsenal, if we had a game on Saturday, by Monday Patrick Vieira was getting dirty on the pitch. As a young player I’m thinking, ‘Ok, put the quality aside because you’re never going to be him but in terms of commitment and work ethic, there’s no way this guy is doing this and you’re not at least matching that.’ I knew by doing that I would have a good chance of staying in the industry for many years.”

“Cristiano is an indisputable great. What he does in matches, his statistics, say everything. Perhaps what sets him apart is that he’s good at every aspect of the game. And he’s a really cool guy. We chat about everything. He has a very human side. He’s always asking things about Brazil. For example, during COVID he’s always asking how the situation is in Brazil. He worries about it. He’s very human, really nice.”

«When I was a boy, I saw Slovenia qualify for EURO 2000 and then the 2002 World Cup. We later reached the 2010 edition too. Having seen how happy people were, I’d love to bring that joy back to the country – and not just for them. For me, playing at a World Cup or EURO would be the fulfilment of a childhood dream, so I’m going to do everything I can to achieve it.»

“That was always going to be the biggest goal in my career, no matter what came after, because it touched so many lives and brought joy to so many people. I’ll always love it – it’s beautiful – but the goal is bigger than me as an individual. Although it happened ten years ago, it still feels like yesterday because I get reminders and messages from people about it every single day. It’s very humbling.”

“I’ve really got into it since I went to the Olympics in 2016. We could basically go and watch whatever we wanted to, and I’d never seen a soccer game on any type of real level. What better place to watch it than at the Olympics? So we went and watched Neymar and Brazil win. I knew it was going to be crazy, because it was Brazil playing in Brazil in the final. I knew it was going to be on a completely different level to an American football game or a basketball game. It was a high-level game and the crowd was just so into it. It felt like nobody ever sat down, nobody was ever quiet. It made me love the game and my curiosity about soccer grow a lot.”

«After the third goal, the goal that put it out of Italy’s reach, I was overwhelmed by emotion. I started crying and I couldn’t stop. I was thinking about everything I’d been through to get to that World Cup. I travelled across the world for surgery on my eye. I was so close to not being allowed to go and almost didn’t get called up. It was really difficult to get used to playing again. When I realised we were going to be world champions, I couldn’t stop crying.»

Adrià Corominas

Insaciable y matador como nadie. Así eg Lewandowski, un jugador que no necesita motivos para perforar las metas rivales y que quedará ligado para siempre a la historia de la Bundesliga.

VIE

BAHÍA

VIE

Flekken; Kübler (Woo-yeong, 72 ‘), Lienhart, Gulde, Günter; Sallai (Schmid, 62 ‘), Höfler, Santamaría (Keitel, 73’), Grifo; Demirovic (Höler, 56 ‘), Petersen (Haberer, 61’).

BAHÍA

Nubel; Davies, Hernández (Marc Roca, 61 ‘), Boateng, Süle (Sarr, 73’); Alaba, Kimmich; Gnabry, Müller (Tolisso), Sané (Coman, 73 ‘); Lewandowski.

Gargantas

0-1 M. 26 Lewandowski (p); 1-1 M. 29 Gulde; 1-2 M. 53 Sané; 2-2 M. 81 Gunter.

Incidencias

EN: Sallai (17 ‘), Davies (87’), Alaba (90 ‘).

El ariete del Bayern consiguió, de penalti, el gol número 40 en esta edición de la Bundesliga, igualando así el récord que tenía otro mito del fútbol alemán como es Gerd Müller, que en la temporada 1971/72 consiguió también un total de 40 goles en un solo curso. Casos medium siglo después, Lewandowski se apunta otro récord a su colección.

Y es que con otra Bundesliga en el bolsillo, y ya van nueve consecutivas para el Bayern, todos los focos del partido estaban puestos encima de Lewandowski. Él y su posible récord fue el máximo aliciente. Y como de costumbre, y el 9 ‘no defraudó.

Bajo una fina lluvia, el polaco solo tardó 26 minutos en pasar a la historia. Un cometido penalti a la piel Müller y señalado por el VAR le dio la opción al polaco de igualar la hazaña. Y antes de este regalo, no falla.

Celebración con homenaje

El polaco lo transformó con su paradinha característica y lo celebró mostrando una camiseta que rezaba el lema ‘4ever Gerd’ (para siempre, Gerd), en clara alusión al mito alemán al que acababa de igualar.

Después, sus compañeros también le rindieron su homenaje particular with a pasillo de plausos justo delante del banquillo.

Las tuvo, y muy claras, para hacer el segundo. Pero el atacante del Bayern se quedó con las ganas y deberá aprovechar la última jornada para hacer el gol que le dé solitaire la propiedad del récord.

solo empáticos

El gol fue histórico, pero no sirvió para que su equipo supera a un Freiburg muy combativo, que solo tardó 3 minutos en igualar la acometida a través de Gulde, que remató a placer un corner servido por Grifo ante la pasividad defensiva de Sobre el.

En la segunda parte, el cuadro bávaro se elevó intensamente y con el mi dominio acaparador, consiguiendo a través de Sané el 1-2 que les volvía a poner por delante. A partir de aquí, el conjunto de Película si se dedicara a pasarle balones un Lewandowski y el Fribourg aprovechó la situación para apretar y perform el empate, obra de Günter.

Un punto right, salvado gracias a ambos porteros, intrascendente para los campeones, but importantísimo para los de la Selva Negra, que se meten de lleno en la lucha por la septima plaza que les dé en el playoff de la nueva Conference League.

Lewandowski se menciona a sí mismo con la historia en Freiburg

Roger Payró

Nunca necesita un buen motivo para marcar goles, va en su adn y ya. sin emabargo Robert Lewandowski hace tiempo que miraba de reojo a record that holding a shot en las dos próximas jornadas. Son las que restan para que acabe the Bundesliga y el aries of Bayern suma ya 39 esta temporada. Es sólo uno de los igualar los históricos 40 del mítico Gerd Müller, marca que persiste desde 1972 y que parecía imbatible hasta que llegó Lewandowski. Hoy, el conjunto de Flick visita a Friburgo con la posibilidad de igualar o superar el récord como principal acicate.

La liga ya se resolvió a su favor, por lo que sigue habiendo ciertas rotaciones aunque la presencia de Robert en tip es incuestionable. On lesión con Polonia le hizo perderse tres partidos de liga y parecía que se le escurriría entre las manos, pero el ‘trillizo’ que endosó al M’Gladbach le abrió nuevamente las puertas.

Si emparejas al Bayern en la Selva Negra con un Fribourg que lucha especificando contra los ‘potros’ y el Union Berlín la plaza de la nueva Conference League. Gulde y Heintz son duda para Christian Streich, mientras que Flick no podrá contar con Douglas Costa, Goretzka ni Nianzou y Choupo-Moting y Hoffmann hijo duda.

En otro orden, en la parte baja el Colonia buscará tres puntos en Berlin ante el Hertha para evitar el equilibrio de la Bundsliga2. En la pelea por evitar la zona roja también está el Arminia Bielefeld, que recibe al Hoffenheim, Sí Werder Bremen, que visita a Augsburgo. Todos los mencionados menos el Hoffenheim aún no se han salvado, por lo que este sábado resulta clave.

Alineaciones probables:

Friburgo: Flekken; Kübler, Lienhart, Schlotterbeck, Günter; Schmid, Santamaria, Höfler, Grifo; Demirovic, Höler

Bayern: Nubel; Pavard, Boateng, Lucas Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Alaba; Sané, Müller, Musiala; y Lewandowski

Ahora: 15.30

Rummenigge asegura la continuidad de Lewandowski

Martí Grau

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, director general del Bayern de Múnich, confirma la continuidad de Robert Lewandowski. In unas declaraciones para el periódico alemán imagen, Rummenigge no dudó en busca del futuro del delantero polaco en el club bávaro. «¡Seguro que se queda! ¿Quién vende a un jugador que marca 60 goles al año?«.

Además, el director del Bayern desmintió les informaciones que relacionaban a Pinos zahavial, en representación de Lewandowski, con un posible interés de vender al goleador. «No preliminar. Sabes exactamente lo que quieres en el FC Bayern«.

Por otro lado, Rummenigge cree que los rumores sobre una posible desvinculación del delantero Polaco perjudican en el club alemán. «Es importante que sean siempre los hechos siempre a favor del FC Bayern«. A la edad de 32 años de edad, es difícil entender los motivos que podrían llevar a cabo a Lewandowski lejos de Múnich.

Opción Haaland descartada, por ahora

El exportero alemán, Oliver Kahn, futuro consejero delegado del Bayern de Múnich a partir de 2022, descartó rotundamente el fichaje de Erling Haaland este verano. «Un jugador que supera los 100 millones de euros es actualmente impensable para el FC Bayern«. El noruego es un día de hoy el deseo de los grandes clubes de Europa.

Kahn cree que con los incrementales registros goleadores de Lewandowski esta vez no hay que preocuparse por un suplente. «Actualmente suma 39 goles en la Bundesliga. Only por esa razón, no tenemos que preocuparnos por Haaland hoy. Estamos contentos de tener a Robert con nosotros en esta condición. Puede mantener este nivel durante unos años más. »
