After Bayern Munich explained the reasons why Robert Lewandowski decided to leave them to sign for FC Barcelona, the Pole has come forward to deny said allegations and clarify that he decided to leave because he considered that it was the right moment.
“I feel like I’m in the right position, in the right place. What happened in the last weeks before she left Barcelona was also political. The club tried to find a fight to justify my sale because maybe it was difficult to explain to the fans.Lewandowski said in an interview with ESPN.
In that sense, the international with the Polish national team let it be known that during the off-season many things were said about him that were not true. “I have to accept this even if there were many lies, many lies about me. They were fake things, but in the end I know that the fans, even in this period, are still very supportive of me,” he added.
Likewise, the 34-year-old striker who arrived at Barcelona in exchange for $46 million dollars plus another $5 million in variables, pointed out how important honesty has been for him in this process and let it be known that he did not always receive it.
“Some people don’t tell the truth, they say something different. For me it was always important to be clear, honest, and perhaps for some this was a problem.. In the end I know that I realized that if something wasn’t right with myself either, then maybe it was a good time to leave Bayern and sign for Barcelona,” he said.
The former Borussia Dortmund player stressed that he always had a “very good relationship” with his peers in the Bavarian club and with the coaching staff.
In the meantime, he said he is ready to face this “new chapter” of his career with Barcelona, where he will look for his first goal this Saturday when he faces the New York Red Bulls in a friendly match.
