Robert Lewandowski ready to face FC Union after recovering from a surgery

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is fitter and fresher ahead of their Bundesliga tie against FC Union on Sunday.

The Poland striker had surgery in December and has used the time during the coronavirus break to improve on his fitness.

The current Bundesliga top scorer admitted that he has been taking advise from 41-year-old Miroslav Klose who was named as the team’s assistant coach last week; the ex-Germany striker having scored 53 goals in 150 games for Bayern during his career.

"I feel better than ever before because I was able to work hard on my physical fitness for the last two months. He (Klose) was a great player and I know that he can help us with his experience and skills. You can learn something new from any coach to become a better player," Lewandowski said.

The 31-year-old is enjoying the best season of his career after netting 25 goals in 23 league games and on course to better his 30-goal haul in both 2015/16 and 2016/17.

The Bundesliga became the first top European league to return this weekend with Bayern heading to Berlin on Sunday with a four-point lead at the top of the table.

Lewandowski and team will be aware of the threat their hosts bring after they beat Dortmund and Moenchengladbach earlier in the season.
