Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski is the most prolific scorer on the planet and one of the world’s best players. While his backstory has been well-documented, Lewandowski was recently asked about when he realized he could be destined for stardom.

For the Polish Hitman, it went back to his initial appearances for Borussia Dortmund.

“I think that was the time my first performances back at Borussia Dortmund. Of course, the first step where I knew I’d be a professional footballer, that was when I went to Lech Poznan at 18. But that was the first step. It wasn’t my dream to play at that level. My dream was always to play in the biggest stadiums and win things with the biggest teams. Step by step and year on year, I always improved something,” Lewandowski told “I think I’ve said a few times down the years that I’m at the top. Sometimes the small things make the small difference. That’s how I knew I had to improve the small things, and together you see the result and the performance.”

Of course, Lewandowski found it easy to identify some of the best moments of his career after those initial performances.

“There have been a lot of moments. When I scored four against Real Madrid in the Champions League, then scoring five goals in nine minutes. You then think what you’ve just done is something special, but success with the team is also important,” Lewandowski remarked. “Like I said, it’s important in football. I know what it means that I’ve come from a so-called smaller nation, where there aren’t so many players at the top level. You’ve had to do some harder work than the players from bigger nations with greater national accomplishments.”
