The Pole has sent a warning as Bayern Munich prepare for the FIFA Club World Cup tournament in Qatar.

Despite his 33rd birthday coming up in August, Robert Lewandowski believes he can still become an even better footballer.

The Polish striker scored a remarkable 55 goals last season to help Bayern Munich win a treble. His efforts were awarded in December by beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for FIFA’s The Best Men’s Player award.

“It [winning the FIFA Best award] was amazing,” Lewandowski told FIFA.com. “But I know that what I won was because of what we won as a team. I hope we can continue winning titles.”

Lewandowski has remained as deadly as ever in front of goal this season, having scored 24 goals in only 19 Bundesliga games. He’s also added another three Champions League goals to take his account up to 27 goals overall.

The former Borussia Dortmund star added: “I’m trying to keep doing these things. For years I’ve been hearing that this is the best Lewandowski. It doesn’t matter how old I am. I can still get better, improve my skills.

“But I know that I’m feeling good. I try to be the best Lewandowski every season.”

Lewandowski is currently preparing for a semi-final clash with Egyptian club Al Ahly on Monday evening in the Club World Cup.
