Robert Lewandowski has urged Bayern Munich to sign a backup striker to ease his workload.

Lewandowski, 29, returned to club training on Tuesday after missing two friendly internationals to rest a thigh injury.

He suggested the muscle problem might be linked to his club's lack of a back-up striker, forcing him into almost constant action.

And he told Sport Bild: "It would definitely be an option to sign a hungry, young striker who wants to learn from an experienced player.

"It would be a relief for me to play 15 or 20 minutes less in a game, then you have more energy for forthcoming games and a higher probability of staying fit and minimising the risk of injury."

However, Bayern's top scorer said he realised it would not be straightforward to find a quality backup who was content to sit on the bench.

"Of course, the club hierarchy will decide which striker is worth considering, but clearly we are not talking about a top international striker," he said.
