Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer gave a harsh response to Robert Lewandowski, who voiced his desire to transfer.
Lewandowski has played for Bayern for eight years, winning eight Bundesliga, one Champions League victory and raising a total of 17 trophies.
The 33-year-old player, who has a contract with Bayern for another year, announced that he will not extend his contract after the 2-2 draw with Wolfsburg on Saturday.
What did Lewandowski say?
Speaking to Sky Germany, he confirmed the rumors about Lewandowski.
“I spoke to Hasan Salihamidzic and informed him of my decision. I will not extend my contract with Bayern.”
“Both sides have to think about the future. If we can find a solution, it would be best for both sides.
Stating that he did not receive a new contract offer from Bayern, the Polish star gave the signal to leave.
“I probably played my last game at Bayern. We have to find the best solution for me and for the club. I was not offered!”
Hainer’s response to Lewandowski
Although Barcelona has come to the fore as Lewandowski’s new address, Hainer, speaking to Sport 1, insists that the striker will remain in the team.
“Lewandowski has a contract until 2023 and will play for us until then.”
“You can’t just sign a contract and then say you’re ‘forced’ to fulfill it.”
When asked if the club had made an offer to Lewandowski, Hainer replied:
“Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic offered him a new contract. It seems that he did not accept this contract.”
Bayern president evaluated Barcelona’s interest as follows:
“Players of the Lewandowski caliber are always getting offers, it’s nothing new. We had a similar situation back in 2019 when he got close to Real Madrid.”
