First, it was claims that he wasn’t supported enough by his teammates and coach at the end of last season, to win the title of the top scorer in the Bundesliga. Now, it’s his thoughts on Bayern Munich’s transfer policy.
Robest Lewandowski caused a public “careful what you say” reaction by Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, after claiming in an interview that the Bavarian club should have spent more and better in the transfer window.
It would be a pity, if he actually saw it that way. Loyalty is part of Bayern’s DNA and very important to our fans. For a long time now we have a serious and successful philosophy that brought us big success. I stick with our chancellor who said the fees should be regulated and reduced
Rummenigge told Bild, before using very strict language directed at the Poland international.
Obviously Robert was irritated by PSG’s transfers. He is employed with us as a football player and earns a lot of money. I regret what he said. Whoever publicly criticises the club or his team-mates will get in trouble with me personally. He already made false claims last season following the Freiburg match, where he claimed he had not been supported enough
were Rummenigge’s words, who went on to almost… warn Lewandowski to be extra careful next time he talks in public.
I don’t think the player’s might is that high. And Lewandowski can see that when he looks at his contract. He signed until 2021 without an exit clause
the Bayern CEO said. Last, he mentioned Lewandowski’s agent as a… source of trouble, first of all, for the Polish striker himself, saying
regrettably his agent often is his ‘Spiritus Rector’. That was the case here, too. The interview was consciously organised around FC Bayern. He harms Robert with that.
