Robert Lewandowski has explained his decision to leave Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich by saying he wants to win more trophies in his career.

In January this year Lewandowski signed a pre-contractual agreement to join Bayern Munich this summer on a free transfer.

The Polish striker has clearly explained that his decision to leave Dortmund was based on the fact that he will get more opportunities to add to his medals tally at Bayern Munich.

"It's got to be my goal to win and collect titles", the Pole told Bild. "I'm certainly going to have better chances with Bayern."


Lewandowski admits that he has had a great spell with BVB but believes that the time is right for him to move on to the next level of his career.

"It was a fantastic time which I will never forget", he said. "But the time had come for me to take the next step."

The 25-year-old feels that Dortmund can easily replace him at the club as they have done when players have left in the past and believes that they will again pose a threat to Bayern Munich next season.

"Dortmund have always been capable of signing good players after others leave and I'm sure they will do that again. Dortmund are going to be challengers again next season, I'm certain of that."

The Pole made 131 league appearances for Borussia Dortmund and scored 74 goals in his time at the Westfalenstadion.
