Multiple reports put Lewandowski’s Net Worth at $45 Million! How did the Polish goal machine earn his riches?
Lewandowski was born August 21, 1988, in Warsaw, Poland. He started with his first youth club in 1997. It was MKS Varsovia Warsaw in his hometown and played there for seven years before moving on to Delta Warsaw. He managed to earn a handful of first team starts with the club as well. Lewandowski got his first taste of a major club joining Lech Poznan in the Polish top division. He joined the club in 2008 and made his debut in July in a qualifier for the UEFA Cup. His final season with the club would be his most successful. He would lead the league with 18 goals while the club would win the league title and the Polish Super Cup.
Lewandowski would also make his senior team debut the same year he joined Lech Poznan. In September 2008 he would make his debut as a substitute and score a goal in a qualifier for the 2010 World Cup. He was only 20 years old at the time, only one other player in Polish National team history scored their debut goal at a younger age. His success on the club and national team would bring Lewandowski into new heights in the Bundesliga soon.
Lewandowski joined Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund in June 2010. He would quickly make himself a mainstay in the first team and would go on to be part of Dortmund’s successful run that would displace Bayern Munich from the top spot in Germany for a short time. In his four seasons with the club, he helped them win two league titles. A DFB-Pokal German Cup, A German Super Cup, and even make a Champions League Final appearance that they lost to Bayern Munich. He would also personally be the top scorer in the Bundesliga in 2014 and lead the tournament in scoring when Dortmund won the German Cup in 2012, again against Bayern Munich.
To go hand in hand with his continued ascension on the club level Lewandowski also continued to be a mainstay on the National Team. He was part of the polish team that went to Euro 2012 in Greece. Unfortunately, the Polish National Team would not qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Even though Poland faced disappointment in 2014, it would turn out to be a big year for Lewandowski.
Before even leaving Borussia Dortmund, Lewandowski announced he would be joining the Black and Yellow team’s rival and German soccer giant, Bayern Munich after the 2014 season was completed. He joined the club at the beginning of the 2014-2015 season. Lewandowski would find even more success with the German juggernaut, winning the league all four years he was on the team, a DFB- Pokal German Cup, and two German Super Cups. On his own, he would lead the league in scoring in 2016 and 2018 and the Pokal tournament in 2017 and 2018.
He would help get Poland back on track by helping them qualify for the 2016 Euro Tournament. He struggled through the tournament, not even getting a shot on target until the round of 16 elimination bracket. When Poland was eliminated from the tournament he had more fouls than any other player in the tournament up to that moment. He would get back on track during the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup, scoring 16 goals in the process en route to Poland making it to the competition.
As the sun sets on Lewandowski’s time with Bayern Munich rumors are abound on where the forward could end up. Wherever that is the team will be getting a quality player to add to their ranks. On top of that Lewandowski isn’t even 30 yet so he still has some time left to make a difference in the soccer history books. So good on anyone who lands the Polish National Team Captain!
