Interviewed by the German press, the agent Pini Zahavi returned to the desires of his Polish client Robert Lewandowski to leave and did not spare the management of Bayern Munich.
After having communicated his desire to leave to his management, the star striker Robert Lewandowski is nevertheless forced by Bayern to honor his contract, expiring in June 2023, until its end. Barcelona, his club of heart, has also sent a first offer of 32 million euros, refused by the Bavarian leaders. A decision that did not please the agent of the Polish international Pini Zahavi, who wanted to settle accounts in the German press.
Indeed, in an interview granted to BILD, the Israeli advisor decided to leave the silence to explain the reasons of Bayern not to let go his number 9, author of 50 goals this season in all competitions: “In fact, I did not want to speak in public because I have great respect for this historic club. However, I can’t not react to Hasan Salihamidzic’s statements. (…) For Robert, Bayern is history.”
“A chance to realize his dream”
Afterwards, Pini Zahavi confirmed the desire to leave his striker, who has not received a new contract from his club: “no, there has not been an offer from Bayern. The fact is that Robert wants to leave Bayern after 8 years of collaboration, during which he gave everything to the club. Now, at the age of almost 34, he has a chance to realize his lifelong dream. Lewandowski wants to leave this summer, neither he nor I care about money. The truth is that he has not felt respected by the board for several months. Bayern has lost Robert not only as a footballer but also as a man.”
The 78-year-old advisor does not understand the attitude of the Munich management towards RL9, who wants to see him play another season in the red-and-white jersey. This is not advised by his agent, who wants to see him leave a club that was already preparing his succession: “he has an agreement until 2023, of course. They can keep Robert Lewandowski for another year because he has an important contract, but I do not recommend doing so. Robert Lewandowski is an intelligent man and he knew what was going on around him and what Bayern was planning. He knew that they wanted to replace him with Haaland, even Erling’s father confirmed it to him. There is no secret of soccer (…) Robert has the chance to join the club he always dreamed of. Why is Bayern denying him this opportunity?” The message has been sent.
