Bayern CEO Slams Lewandowski

Bayern Munich CEO Slams Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has slammed star striker Robert Lewandowski for publicly criticising the club's transfer policy.

Super-Agent Comments On Barca Target's Future

The Poland international has been critical of the Bavarians' lack of big-money signings this season, and reportedly feels the club needs to start spending to keep up with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona – something Rummenigge did not take kindly to.

"It would be a pity if he saw it that way. Loyalty is part of Bayern's DNA and very important to our fans," the CEO told Bild.

"For a long time now, we have a serious and successful philosophy that brought us big success. I stick with our chancellor, who said the fees should be regulated and reduced.

"Obviously, Robert was irritated by PSG's transfers. He is employed with us as a football player and earns a lot of money. I regret what he said. Whoever publicly criticises the club or his teammates will get in trouble with me personally. He already made false claims last season following the Freiburg match, where he claimed he had not been supported enough.

"I don't think the player's might is that high? And Lewandowski can see that when he looks at his contract. He signed until 2021 without an exit clause.

"Regrettably, his agent often is his 'Spiritus Rector'. That was the case here, too. The interview was consciously organised around FC Bayern. He harms Robert with that."
