Ex-FC Bayern President Uli Hoeneß (70) insists on contract fulfillment by Robert Lewandowski (33). He is even calm about legal tricks.
Hoeneß does not believe in change: Honorary President Uli Hoeneß believes in another season for Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich and makes no secret of his conviction: “I’m looking forward to his first training session with Bayern in July!” he said, according to “Bild”. On the sidelines of a celebration in the Munich restaurant “Tantris”.
Short, compact, clear
Legally, an exit would be possible: Robert Lewandowski could take a legal way out: According to paragraph 17 of the Fifa statutes, a foreign player after the age of 28 can unilaterally terminate a long-term contract after three years, according to the “Bild”.
Trouble with Uli Hoeneß would be inevitable: the honorary president had already warned in 2010 in connection with Franck Ribéry’s (39) idea of emigration: “If any of the big clubs try to pull paragraph 17, then all hell will break loose. I wouldn’t advise that to any club in the world.”
