In reacting to his current achievement after winning the award, he took to his twitter handle to say:
“I would like to thank my family, my team mates, coaches and the entire FC Bayern team. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved together as a team.”
“I have to honestly say that I am immensely proud,” the Poland striker said. “I am very satisfied.”
“in the season when I scored that historic number of goals 41, there was a moment when for the first time I didn’t think I could did but because of the time when I was injured.”
“But then I just thought about it for a moment, that I am so near to that record! However many matches I have I got when I get back, I have to be positively and believe that I can score 41 goals, and in that way match Gerd Mueller, who is someone I admire very much. This is a great history.”

“ I’m delighted (for your achievement). And I hope your score lots more goals.
“That’s okay, as long as I’m not in charge of the team you score against.”
“and I’ve said it before – and I’ll say it again, I’m a bit proud of you.”
