It would be the most spectacular storm ever! In one team, Robert Lewandowski (33) from FC Bayern Munich and Erling Haaland (21) from BVB face each other.
“I would have to train with him for a week or two before I could say more about it,” Lewy said at a press conference the day after winning FIFA’s World Player election. Erling is clearly not the same type of player as me. But he’s a top player and I’m glad he can show his skills in the Bundesliga. For me, that simply means that I have to keep doing my job and be thankful that there are players like that in the Bundesliga. “
A rather surprising statement, considering that Lewy is often happy about the ongoing Haaland rumors in Munich …
The chances of this super duo playing for the same club next season are slim to non-existent. However, nothing has ever been impossible in football. A year ago nobody would have predicted that Messi, Neymar and Mbappé would play together in Paris Saint-Germain.
It should probably be an either/or situation with Lewandowski and Haland. Bayern will extend the Polish international’s contract, which expires in 2023, as soon as possible. Alternatively, Munich could step up their efforts to sign Haland (who has a €75m release clause) and then sell Lewandowski in the next transfer window to win back some money.
“It doesn’t matter if you play on team A, B or C when you show your performance on the field,” Lewy says of his future. I’m trying not to think too much about other clubs or a new contract. After all, I have to concentrate and give everything. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I think about it. I’m an experienced player who keeps all my personal information private. It is not too late yet. I keep a calm and patient demeanor and don’t get upset.”
“I understand football and politics in the background,” said the attacker when asked how much he was bothered by the rumors about Bayern and Haland. I am familiar with both sides. All I have to do now is relax. I don’t want to say accept, but I have to focus. “The other one doesn’t help me.”
Lewandowski also spoke about…
“It was his decision, I respect it,” said Lionel Messi about his voting habits (he preferred PSG teams Neymar (29) and Kylian Mbappé (23) over Kаrim Benzema (34)). I don’t want to be angry or say anything negative. I didn’t do anything wrong that he could be angry about, except athletically, which is different, but I hope I was fine privately.”
“Gerd Müller’s records help me to get better,” says the Sturm legend. I try to break records when I see they can be broken. The record for the most Bundesliga goals (365, editor’s note) is still within reach. I don’t think about it because it’s impossible to do this season. You should avoid exposing yourself to too much stress. Last season I set a new personal best with 41 goals in the Bundesliga. “It was something unique.”
