Robert Lewandowski has been in sublime form this year yet the Bayern Munich star is still ‘a bit underestimated’, says Clarence Seedorf.

Lewandowski finished as top-scorer in the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, and the Champions League last season to help Bayern Munich win all three competitions.

In the eyes of many fans and players alike, the Pole would’ve won a maiden Ballon d’Or had France Football not canceled the award for 2020. But, by all means, it should take nothing away from an outstanding year.

He has also enjoyed a superb start to the current campaign by providing Bayern 13 goals and five assists in only 11 appearances in all competitions.

But while everybody lavishes praise on Lewandowski’s goal exploits, Seedorf suggested his all-round game doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.

“There has always been competition. But we have to acknowledge that he has been performing at a high level, not only scoring goals, but his game is complete,” the AC Milan legend told Goal.

“He knows how to hold the ball, how to give assists, he obviously knows how to score goals.

“He’s a hard worker and a team player and the way that he knows how to move in the spaces.

“He’s very complete. Sometimes, even his dribbling is efficient. He may be a bit underestimated in some of these aspects of the game.

“Anyone who knows the game can see these things in him. I consider him absolutely the top.”
