Lewandowski not at Kanes level due to playing in "Mickey Mouse league"

Robert Lewandowski has been told that he cannot be considered to be at Harry Kane's level as he is playing in a "Mickey Mouse league".

The Polish international is widely considered to be one of the greatest strikers of all time, having spent more than a decade featuring at the top of the Bundesliga scoring charts. He broke Gerd Muller's record for most goals in a single Bundesliga season last term, firing in 41 times in total.

He has followed that up with 31 goals this term, with the Bayern Munich star finishing second in last year's Ballon d'Or. Kane has also starred for Tottenham, claiming the Premier League's golden boot three times as well as closing in on Wayne Rooney's England scoring record.

And former Aston Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor believes that the level of competition that Kane faces in the English top-flight puts him ahead of Lewandowski. He went as far as to brand the Bundesliga, which Bayern have won nine times in succession, as a "mickey Mouse league".

“I feel that Lewandowski is an outstanding striker. His numbers are crazy but, like we said, he’s playing in the ‘Mickey Mouse’ league," Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.

“Compare that to the Premier League with Harry Kane, how many goals has he scored in the Premier League? Put Harry Kane in that Bayern Munich frontline, how many does he score?”

Bayern are once again leading the way in the German top-flight and currently have a six-point cushion over second-placed Borussia Dortmund. Lewandowski's goals have also put him on course to win the Kicker-Torjägerkanone trophy, awarded to Germany's top scorer, with the Pole 11 strikes ahead of Patrick Schick in second.

The only other top-flight Lewandowksi has played in is in his native Poland, though he has been linked with a move to both Manchester City and Barcelona in the past year. Kane meanwhile is currently eight goals behind Mohamed Salah in the race to win the Premier League's golden boot.
