Replacing the ‘leading’ role of Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich, perhaps few would expect that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting would be so explosive this season. After 15 appearances in all competitions, the 33-year-old striker has contributed a total of 11 goals and 2 assists for the Gray Lobster.
Lewandowski commented, it is still not possible to evaluate Choupo-Moting when the season is still long. Talking to Marca, when asked if he expected the former PSG star to become successful, the Polish striker said:
“If the team plays well, it will be easier for the strikers. He has scored many goals and is in good form now.”
“I know Choupo-Moting well, he’s a good guy. I worked with him at Bayern. I know Choupo-Moting is going through a great period. I’m really glad he’s scored some goals, but the season is long. All I can say is good luck, and I hope he stays like this for the rest of the season.”
Notably, before Choupo-Moting’s impressive performance, recently a number of big teams are said to have put this striker in the sights. Typically in the case of Manchester United, the club is in urgent need of a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
