Lewandowski Responds To Claims He Is Being Selfish

With Bayern Munich unhappy with Robert Lewandowski's public statements about wanting to leave the club to join Barcelona, the Polish striker has now responded to suggestions he is being selfish.

Lewandowski Makes Huge Barca Admission

The 33-year-old has been clear about his desire to be sold by the Bavarians ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, having stated that he feels his time at Bayern is over.

Several club officials, however, have insisted Lewandowski has a year remaining on his contract and should appreciate what he has been given at the Bundesliga giants, although the forward believes respect is a two-way street.

Now, responding to claims he is being self-serving in his wishes to be let go, Lewandowski has insisted being honest is what Bayern fans deserve. 

Lewandowski is one of the best-paid footballers in world football. Here is how his current annual earnings compare to other high-profile stars: 

 

"No, it's not (selfish)," he told Bild.

"I know what I had at Bayern and I appreciate it very much. I also know that I have been doing my best not to disappoint the club and the fans for the last eight years.

"I have always tried to give my best, to meet the expectations of the team and the fans. I appreciate the fans.

"If I wasn't honest about my situation, I would feel I wasn't being fair to the fans. I know there are a lot of emotions today, but I hope the fans will understand me at some point."

Lewandowski's potential Barcelona move will depend on the Catalan club's financial situation, with it thought that a few players need to leave the Camp Nou before a deal can be struck.
