Former Bayern Munich star and current FC Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski has now come out to clear the air concerning his move.
“I cannot say bad words about my teammates, or the club — even though there was kind of politics before — but the time, what I did for the club in this eight years for Bayern Munich was amazing,”
Lewandowski told ESPN. “I’m growing every single season, and I know that to decide to move somewhere else will be more difficult every year.
“Even now it was challenging to decide to go to Barcelona because I know what I did, the comfort zone I had in Bayern Munich already, but I was always open to something new.”
The Poland international wanted to be clear that it was simply time for him to try something new and that his transfer was not because of the club or his teammates.
“I heard that Barcelona wanted to sign me, and that was a sign that maybe now is the perfect timing to go to Barcelona, go to LaLiga. I know that I can still play for a few years at the top high level and that’s why I decided to go to Barcelona. I’m happy to be part of this team,” Lewandowski remarked.
