Bayern Munich and Robert Lewandowski saga has become ugly after the transfer

Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski completed a transfer to Barcelona earlier this summer for a reported €45 million. The price tag could potentially rise to €50 million with add-ons. The transfer saga was one of the most protracted stories one will ever come across. The Polish international was linked with the club for months before the move actually went through.

However, the aftermath of the transfer has taken an ugly turn with comments from both the club and the player. Robert Lewandowski in an interview after the move to Camp Nou has claimed that Bayern Munich has spread lies about the reason for the transfer.

The forward has clarified that the transfer from Bayern Munich has nothing to do with Bayern’s interest in Erling Haaland. The striker did not go into the details of what happened between them, however, brushed away rumours of discontent over a potential Bayern Munich move for Erling Haaland.

Robert Lewandowski and Bayern Munich have both hit out at each other

The Polish forward in an interview with ESPN said that:

“No, that was nothing to do with Erling. I am the guy who even if something’s not good for me – truth is more important. I don’t want to speak about what happened exactly. But if the question is if the decision to move was because of him, no, I didn’t see the problem if he joined Bayern Munich. But some kind of people doesn’t say to me the truth, say something different. And for me it was always important to be clear, to stay true, and maybe for a few people that was the problem.”

It seems that Robert Lewandowski is hinting toward executives at Bayern Munich in this statement. There have been multiple reports regarding Bayern executives’ strained relationship with the striker. The Poland international seems to also hint toward problems with the hierarchy at the Allianz Arena.

In response to the statement made by Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich Director, Hasan Salihamidzic said:

“I don’t understand it at all. My father always taught me that when you leave, never close the door with your behind. Robert is headed in the direction of doing exactly that. It’s something Bayern does not accept.”

Speaking on the relationship with Barcelona and Joan Laporta, the Bayern executive further said that:

“I’ll talk to Laporta when we see each other next time.”

Nevertheless, it seems that both the club and the player made the right choice by moving on as the statements in the aftermath indicate a relationship strained beyond repair at least for now!!
