FC Bayern must decide how to deal with Robert Lewandowski’s drastically formulated change request. If ex-DFL boss Bruchhagen has his way, the answer is clear: he calls on Munich not to sell the Poles.

“Teach a lesson”: After Robert Lewandowski publicly expressed his wish to change, Bayern should “teach a lesson” to their star striker. This is what the former DFL boss Heribert Bruchhagen calls for in an interview with “RTL”. Bayern should insist Lewandowski fulfill his contract until 2023.

“New quality” of the escalation: Bruchhagen sees a new level of escalation in Lewandowski’s public push for the sale. “Normally that’s the agent’s job, you always have the agent go public and say it’s over. The fact that the player makes such statements is already a new quality and it shows a determination, no further to be part”.

Bayern want to keep the star striker: Lewandowski declared at a PK in Poland on Monday that his time at Bayern was over. The Pole wants to switch to FC Barcelona. However, the Bayern bosses, especially CEO Oliver Kahn, emphasize that they want to keep the striker until the end of his contract.
