Amazon announce documentary on Robert Lewandowski to release in 2022

The life and rise to stardom of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski will be depicted in a documentary on Amazon Prime Video, set to be released in 2022.

Lewandowski had one of the best individual seasons in Bundesliga history in 2020/21. Bayern's star man scored an astonishing 41 goals in the German top-fight, eclipsing the record held by another Bayern great, Gerd Müller, which had stood for 49 years.

The Poland international's goals helped Bayern to clinch a ninth consecutive Bundesliga title, just a year after Lewandowski had claimed FIFA's Best Men's Player award for 2020 after top-scoring in the Bundesliga, DFB Cup and UEFA Champions League as Bayern went on to clinch a historic sextuple of titles under Hansi Flick.

Now, with Lewandowski in the best goalscoring form of his career at the age of 32, the Pole's life story will be shown in a documentary on Amazon Prime Video.

"We want to tell a story of ups and downs, strengths and weaknesses unfiltered - to present the events as they really happened," said Lewandowski.

The documentary should "show many facets of my career that are interesting for football fans," added the Pole. "But I hope that the viewers who don't watch football regularly will also appreciate the many small details. I want that the documentary will be an inspiration to the children who dream of achieving something big but do not believe that they can do it."

While Lewandowski has enjoyed unrivalled individual success in the last few years at the Allianz Arena, his rise to stardom was no easy journey. That very journey is what Bayern's No.9 wants to show in this documentary.

Lewandowski's story is "not just about success, but also about the difficulties and setbacks he had to overcome in his career, and about his unconditional will to achieve great things in the end," said Christoph Schneider, Managing Director of Prime Video in Germany.
