Robert Lewandowski wants to continue leaving Bayern Munich. Sports director Salihamidzic wants to keep him – as well as another star.
Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic firmly believes that goalscorer Robert Lewandowski will be reintegrated into the team of the German record champions despite the fuss about his offensively promoted change intentions. “Yes, I’m convinced. He’s a professional and he has big goals in his career. That’s why it’s fixable,” said Salihamidzic in an interview with pay TV broadcaster Sky.
The 33-year-old Lewandowski had declared that he absolutely wanted to leave Bayern despite his contract running until June 30, 2023. Likely destination is FC Barcelona. CEO Oliver Kahn and other club officials had categorically ruled out a change. Salihamidzic confirmed that he and Kahn spoke to Lewandowski and his agent Pini Zahavi in Mallorca last week.
Details of the conversation remain confidential
“I think we had a very good conversation,” said the 45-year-old. “It’s true, I was there. Oliver Kahn was there too, we talked, each side explained their position, but we also discussed that we don’t want to talk about the details. But it was a good conversation. “
According to the current status, it is clear to Salihamidzic that Lewandowski will stay in Munich. “So far it’s 100 percent. July 12 is his first day at work, so I’m expecting him,” he said.
