Lewandowski could be a 'good NFL wide receiver', claims Nagelsmann

‘He would be perfect to make a touchdown!’: Robert Lewandowski could be a ‘good NFL wide receiver’, claims Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann

  • Robert Lewandowski now has an incredible 29 goals in 18 Bayern Munich games
  • Julian Nagelsmann believes though that the Pole could successfully swap sports 
  • Harry Kane and Christian Fuchs have expressed a desire to be kickers in the NFL
  • Kane is an avid New England Patriots fan and is friends with legend Tom Brady

He may be one of the world’s best footballers, but Robert Lewandowski could also make waves in the American variety, according to Julian Nagelsmann.

Lewandowski scored in an incredible 18th straight game for Bayern Munich on Tuesday as they resoundingly beat Barcelona 3-0 at the Nou Camp, with the Polish striker bagging his 29th goal in an unbelievable streak. 

At 33, Lewandowski seems to have at least a couple more years left in him before he hangs up his boots, but if Nagelsmann is to be believed, he could be an asset for an NFL outfit, with the Bayern boss telling Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid in quotes reported by Goal: ‘He could be a good receiver.

However, his boss Julian Nagelsmann thinks he would also excel in the NFL as a wide receiver

‘He is fast and physically strong. In the RedZone he would be perfect to catch a short pass and to make a touchdown.’

A wide receiver’s role is to avoid opposition cornerbacks or safeties and catch passes by his team’s quarterback with the aim of reaching the end zone for a touchdown.

Most recently, Harry Kane and Christian Fuchs have expressed a desire to become kickers in the NFL. 

Kane – an avid New England Patriots fan – has a good relationship with seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady and reiterated his desire late last year to master the change in sports.

‘That [playing in the NFL] would be obviously [on] a bucket list, a dream come true,’ Kane told Channel 5’s Kirsten Watson. 

‘I think there’s still a long way to go between now and that moment. But I think it’s something that I’ve got one eye on.

‘And who knows, towards the end of my career, I might take it a little bit more seriously.’
