Robert Lewandowski has reiterated his intent to depart Bayern München this summer, stating that “something died” inside him.
The Polish international has repeatedly said he wants to leave, but Bayern want the striker to honor his contract, which expires in 2023.
Speaking to Polish media outlet Onet Sport, however, Lewandowski emphasized once more that he doesn’t want to keep playing for Bayern.
“I am leaving because I want more emotions in my life. They didn’t want to listen to me until the end. Something died inside me – and it’s impossible to get over that. Even if you want to be professional, you can’t make up for it,” Lewandowski told Onet Sport (via @iMiaSanMia).
“When you have been at the club for so many years, you were always ready, you were available, despite the injuries and pain you gave your best, I think it will be best to find a good solution for both sides. And not to look for a one-sided decision.
“It does not make sense. Not after this time. After such a successful path and on my part of readiness and support, this loyalty and respect are probably more important than this business.
“What kind of player will want to come to Bayern Munich if he knows he can’t leave the club? Where is that loyalty and respect? I was always ready, I always wanted to play, even when there were injuries.”
