Dhe former Polish Bundesliga professional Tomasz Hajto has criticized his compatriot in view of the exchange hiccups surrounding Robert Lewandowski. “It should have been discussed internally. This action by Robert, rushing forward like that – that would not have happened with Rummenigge and Hoeneß,” said Hajto at Sport1 about the FC Bayern Munich striker who was willing to change: “They held everything together. Nothing was ever made public. The theater now doesn’t need Robert, nor do Bayern need it.”
Former Schalke and Nuremberg resident Hajto (49), now an expert on Polish television, “always met with Lewandowski. He had wanted to change a year ago. A player like him now has the last chance to feel something new in football.”
“He is deeply disappointed”
Hajto does not understand that the two-time world footballer Lewandowski (33), who is said to be moving to FC Barcelona, launched his desire to change via the media. “I do not like it. Of course he can say ‘I want to go!’ Two such big names – it was clear that it would bang publicly. Oliver Kahn (CEO of Bayern, ed.) said he had made an offer, but Robert said he hadn’t received one. He’s just deeply disappointed,” said Hajto. But: “It was the wrong time to talk about FC Bayern in the national team.”
Lewandowski had repeatedly confirmed his desire to leave Bayern this summer. “Something has gone out inside me. I want more emotions in my life,” said the Pole about the Internet portal “Onet.pl”.
The Bayern management, on the other hand, had emphasized that Lewandowski, whose contract runs until 2023, would stay with the German record champions for that long. The world footballer is reportedly drawn to FC Barcelona.
