Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski is one of the best players of his generation. The Polish international is also one of the greatest players of all time in the history of the Rekordmeister†
There’s no arguing with that… but man, this guy can definitely throw himself an awesome pity party.
In conversation with the Polish OnetSport, @iMiaSanMia caught these “woe is me” quotes:
This must be a bad translation (I hope):
“I’m leaving because I want more emotions in my life. They wouldn’t listen to me until the end. Something died in me – and it’s impossible to get over it. Even if you want to be professional, you can’t make up for that.”
The campaign for an exit:
“When you’ve been with the club for so many years, you were always ready, you were available, despite the injuries and pain you gave me, I think it’s best to find a good solution for both sides. And not too much.” “Seeking a unilateral decision. It makes no sense. Not after this time. After such a successful path and on my part of willingness and support, this loyalty and respect is probably more important than this company.”
And then… the dagger:
“What kind of player wants to go to Bayern, knowing that something like this could happen to them? Where is the loyalty and respect? I was always ready, I spent eight wonderful years here, I met great people and I want that.” keep it that way.”
Look, everything good that has been written about Lewandowski still stands. He is arguably the most important player of this generation at Bayern Munich. He is a fantastic person in every way and a true story of resilience throughout his life – and while I understand that he wants to leave and feels trapped in Bavaria, this kind of talk just comes across as whiny.
Hopefully Lewandowski will get the solution that will make him and his family happy, but maybe he should avoid launching a campaign to leave Bayern Munich with this kind of media citation.
