After a number of sports greats have already commented on the transfer rumors surrounding star striker Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern Munich, his former teammate Franck Ribéry is now also speaking out. He sees a big risk for the club.

New paths: Franck Ribéry, a former Bayern Munich player, shows understanding for a potential transfer from Robert Lewandowski in a recent interview with Wirtualna Polska. The Frenchman wishes the current top striker of the record champions that his dream of a new challenge comes true. Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in the world, “but sometimes you just want and need a change.”

Words of warning: Ribéry sees the biggest problems with a Lewandowski transfer among the Bayern bosses, who are currently reluctant to leave. “A footballer who is forced to stay” can quickly “be frustrated and angry”. Keeping the 33-year-old at the club against his will is therefore a “risk”.

Once together: Ribéry and Lewandowski played together for Munich for five years. However, the Frenchman left the club in 2019. He is now at US Salernitana 1919. Should Lewandowski also turn his back on Bayern, Ribéry considers interested parties FC Barcelona to be “a good choice”.
