Despite his 33 years, there is still no wear on Robert Lewandowski. He closed the 2021 calendar year with 43 league goals, one more than the record of Gerd Müller, who died this year.
Whether Lewandowski himself is already thinking about a future after football is doubtful, but his honorary president has already done so. “If he went into politics, I would be confident that he could become prime minister of Poland,” said Uli Hoeness.
“Robert is an intelligent guy with a clear view of the world. He is someone who thinks a lot,” Hoeness praises the striker in the sports magazine Kicker.
Lewandowski wouldn’t be the first ex-footballer to try it in politics too. Ex-Milan defender Khaladze is currently deputy prime minister of Georgia, George Weah is even the current president of Liberia.
