Robert Lewandowski declared that Bayern Munich do not need to sign another striker as the prospect of a rival for his position arriving in Bavaria loomed large.
Bayern chairmain Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently sparked transfer rumours by praising Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain, but Lewandowski insists that he will play regardless of who the German giants bring to the Allianz Arena.
“I don’t know what Bayern’s plans for the future look like, but it would not be a problem for me if they signed another striker, regardless of whether that’s Higuain or someone else,” Lewandowski told Sport Bild. “I will still be playing if another striker arrives. I’m convinced of my own qualities. I am strong enough.”
He added: “I am prepared to play 60 games a season and we have other top players in our attack. I do not need competition in order to train even harder.”
