Lewandowski the best No.9 in the world, says Hamann

The ex-Germany international feels the forward is the best in the world in his position and believes his departure is still hurting Borussia Dortmund

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Dietmar Hamann has voiced his admiration for Robert Lewandowski, saying he is arguably the best No.9 in the world.

The 26-year-old has been struggling to live up to the high expectations at the Allianz Arena since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund ahead of the 2014-15 campaign, having scored 10 goals in 27 appearances in all competitions so far this term.

Nevertheless, Hamann is adamant that the striker remains one of the best around and believes much of Dortmund’s struggles this season are down to the Pole’s exit.

“For me, Lewandowski is the best No.9 in the world,” Hamann told Sky.

“He made the difference at Dortmund joining Bayern.

“He was BVB’s most important player. He was more important than Reus is now and than Mario Gotze ever was at Dortmund. There are no words to describe how important he was at Dortmund.”

Lewandowski scored 20 goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances in his final season for BVB.
