The move to England was supposed to take place in 2010. At that time, Lewandowski was still playing for Lech Poznan (21 goals in 34 games). The Pole already talked about the almost England move in 2017: “I thought it was something new and could be something special. I think it would have been nice if I had gone to Blackburn.”

But: “I couldn’t go because of the volcanic cloud (the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010; editor). The flight was booked, but a week went by and no one could fly in Europe. That changed my life. If I had gone to Blackburn I might have stayed there.”

For the Bundesliga, however, the volcanic eruption was a gift. Because: Instead of going to Blackburn, Lewandowski moved to BVB. And smashed a number of records in his twelve years at Borussia and Bayern. He scored a total of 312 goals in 384 Bundesliga games. Became top scorer in Germany seven (!) times.

Lewandowski moved to Dortmund in 2010 for a fee of almost five million euros. The transfer to FC Bayern followed in 2014. In Germany he became champion eleven times, won the DFB Cup, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup four times.

In September, the current Barcelona striker explained in SPORT BILD: “I’m super happy in Barcelona, ​​on the pitch, in the city, with my family. I am happy as a person. Before Barcelona I was a bit like a machine, here I became more of a human.”
