Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has made comments that may be interpreted as a dig at his former club.

According to Goal, the Polish star said: "At Dortmund the defence would play long balls for me to chase but here the decisive criteria is possession."

The Poland international made the switch from Dortmund to Bayern on a free transfer last summer. During his time at Dortmund the Pole won two Bundesliga titles and helped Dortmund to a Champions League final; and how could anyone forget his remarkable four goal haul against Real Madrid in the semi-final?

Since joining Bayern, the clinical forward has failed to make too much of an impact - he has netted just 13 times in 24 Bundesliga appearances. The 26-year-old hasn't lived up to his high expectations, resulting in heavy criticism. 

Despite his poor goal return, Lewandowski still believes he is a better striker at Bayern that what he was at Dortmund. The Bayern website revealed that Lewandowski said: "I've been at Bayern for about six months and I'm now better at my art; every day I train with great players.

"Of course you can always play better and score more goals but I'm a player who thinks of the team."

Fulfilling his potential

In his four seasons at Dortmund, Bayern's number nine scored 74 goals in 141 league matches; an exceptional goal return. At just 26-years-old Lewandowski is yet to fulfil his full potential, and he is bound to find his best form again.

With eight games remaining, Bayern sit ten points clear of second placed Wolfsburg, it is very likely Lewandowski will win his third Bundesliga title in his career. This Saturday he'll will face off against his former club.
