The Polish footballer has been enjoying his time at Fortuna Dusseldorf in the German Bundesliga, where he hopes he can shine brightly.

Polish footballer Dawid Kownacki joined German Bundesliga side Fortuna Dusseldorf in the winter transfer window.

And there, he has helped his team get saved from relegation, as he hopes to emulate fellow countryman Robert Lewandowski.

“It was an amazing feeling because in the last half year when I was in Italy it was difficult for me as I didn’t play,” he said about his first goals in the competition, according to the league’s official website.

“I came here to play and it was a very important goal for me because I could show everybody that I’m a good player and I want to play more.”

Lucien Favre delighted with Dortmund efficiency

The Borussia Dortmund manager hails the job his players did today, as they continue to race against Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga title.

“I was very happy because after this game I felt more confident; I felt that I was a good player because not every player has scored two goals in a Bundesliga game,” he added.

“Robert Lewandowski’s one of the best strikers in the world. Every season he scores a lot of goals. He’s a very good striker.”

“I’ve played with him on the national team so I know him very well. I saw him on the training ground and in the game,” he explained.

“He’s very strong, he plays well with his back to goal, but he’s also the player who works hardest for the team, especially in the national team.”

“He sometimes plays like a number nine, but sometimes he plays like a number ten, takes the ball and controls the situation. He’s a very good player and in the national team, he’s our captain. He works very hard,” the footballer concluded.
