Bayern striker Lewandowski gets a degree... after writing about himself

The prolific Poland international is now a bachelor of sports, but has taken 10 years to get to this point following a decade of study

Robert Lewandowski is one of the finest strikers in world football, and the Bayern Munich star is now also a bachelor of sports.

The 29-year-old has finally finished a degree in Physical Education with coaching and management at Warsaw’s School of Education in Sport.

Lewandowski 16/1 to be CL top scorer

It has taken him 10 years to get to this point, and his thesis focused on himself!

Lewandowski’s ‘RL 9, path to glory’ marks the end of a decade of study for the Poland international, who has been given the highest possible grade by his university panel.

One of his professors, Marek Rybinski, said that Lewandowski’s answers within his work were “excellent”.

Having added academic honours to his list of achievements, the Polish frontman is now free to turn his attention back to matters on the football field.

He collected his degree less than 24 hours after helping his country to the 2018 World Cup finals.

Lewandowski will now be among the galaxy of stars at next summer’s global showpiece in Russia.

Prior to that, though, he has domestic issues to address with Bayern.

The German giants have endured a testing start to the 2017-18 campaign, which resulted in the dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti as manager.

Jupp Heynckes has been drafted back into the post on a short-term basis, with a fourth spell at the helm for the experienced coach set to take him through to the end of the season.

If he is to get close to the treble-winning exploits that he achieved during his last stint, then Lewandowski will have a key role to play.

He has 12 goals in just 11 appearances this season, taking him on to 122 efforts in only 158 outings for Bayern.

Lewandowski has also passed the 300-goal mark in club competition this term, while raising his international tally to 51 from 91 caps.
