“Can we help anyone, so let’s do it.”
Such is the opinion of the Polish stjerneangriber in Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski, and his wife Anna Lewandowski to the German Bild.
the Reason for the opinion is that they just donated a million euros, corresponding to approx. 7.5 million Danish kroner to a fund to help in the battle against corona.
the Fund, called ‘We Kick Corona’, is created by Lewandowski’s team-mates at Bayern Munich, Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich.
Since its creation, more football star, such as Manchester City’s Leroy Sané and Paris Saint-Germain Draxler Julian donated money – Lewandowski’s contribution is the largest so far.
Lewandowski-the pair elaborates also bevæggruden for their donation:
“Everyone knows of the difficult situation, all facing in with regard to corona. Today, we are all on the same team. Let us be strong in the battle. The situation affects us all, so we ask that you follow the instructions and listen to those who know best. Show accountability,” they say, and continues:
“We hope and believe that soon, we will get through this and return to our normal everyday lives. We are in this together, and we must also get through it together”.
Also Danish football players have donated money to the fight against corona. Bl.a. the Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. You can read more about here.
