Praise the Lord for Robert Lewandowski’s surprising outburst, otherwise we’d have to watch the Confederations Cup, for our footballing fix.
“I was not really happy with how my team helped me. I was annoyed and disappointed with the team’s attitude.”
Robert Lewandowski speaking to Polish Super-Express
The big Polish striker believes that his Bayern Munich team have failed to realise that they were put on this earth to serve him, and him alone.
Lewandowski found the back of the net a remarkable 30 times in Bundesliga last season, however, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took the individual award with 31 goals for Borussia Dortmund.
The Gabon forward only pipped Munich’s main man on the final day of the season, scoring a brace in Dortmund’s entertaining 4-3 win over Werder Bremen. Munich also scored four times in the last fixture, and yet, despite playing 90 minutes, Lewandowski failed to score.
“Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) gave no call to help him win the top-scorer title in the last game.
“He was disappointed as I have ever seen him before.”
Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, speaking to Kicker
There’s no denying Lewandowski’s prowess in front of goal, and with 54 goals in 53 games for club and country during the 2016/17 season, he deserves his place in discussions behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
These elite players are sensitive souls, though; their egos are delicate. Lewandowski needs to know he’s the best.
And for him to get that, he also needs to get Arjen Robben to realise football is a team game.
May as well head to Chelsea, Robert.
