Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski has made it clear that he is not thinking of leaving Munich in the foreseeable future. “The truth is that I have a contract with Bayern and I am very happy at this club,” he said in an interview with Tuttosport, asked about the alleged interest of other clubs. ESPN had recently reported that PSG, Manchester City and Chelsea were interested in signing in the summer.
“We’re talking about one of the three to four most important clubs in Europe and the world,” continued the attacker, who is still tied to FCB until 2023. “To play at Bayern you have to know and accept a rule: you have to win every year and raise trophies. The expectations are very high. You always have to be the best.”
This will not change after Hansi Flick’s departure under the new coach Julian Nagelsmann: “A new chapter will be opened. What Flick did will go down in history because it was epic. We broke many records.”
The hunger for success of his teammates and himself will not subside even after the ninth championship in a row – in the top 5 leagues only Juventus Turin had achieved this before: “We are Bayern, so we want to win everything with Nagelsmann.” For him personally, too, everything will stay the same: “I have to score under the new coach and give everything. That’s what I love. When I win and score, everything feels nicer to me.”
The Pole has been playing for FC Bayern since moving from BVB in 2014. In 327 games he has so far scored 292 goals and 65 assists. In the two outstanding Bundesliga games he is chasing Gerd Müller’s historic record of 40 goals in one season. He currently has 39 hits.
