Wantaway Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has reiterated his stance of wanting to leave the club – declaring that something has ‘died’ inside him at the German giants.
Lewandowski has been publicly vocal about his desires to quit Bayern this summer, to the ire of their board, with Barcelona his preferred destination.
‘They didn’t want to listen to me until the end. Something died inside me – and it’s impossible to get over that. Even if you want to be professional, you can’t make up for it. No other offers were even considered by me other than that of Barcelona. I want to leave Bayern, that’s clear.
‘During so many years at the club I was always ready, available, despite injuries and the pain, I gave my best. I think the best thing to do is to find a good solution for both sides. And not to look for a one-sided decision.
‘I’m not looking for a unilateral solution, that makes no sense, not after so much time, after such a successful era and with my will and support.’
What kind of player will want to go to Bayern knowing that something like this could happen to them? Where are the loyalty and respect then?
‘I was always been ready, I spent eight nice years here, I met wonderful people and I would like it to stay that way in my mind.’
