The Munich legend Paul Breitner has little understanding for the alternating theater around world footballer Robert Lewandowski at the German record champions Bayern Munich.
“I can’t remember that when I was playing, anyone tried to get out of their contract no matter what,” said Breitner on Wednesday at the presentation of the book “The Night of Seville” in the German Football Museum in Dortmund.
It was a “new development that would adapt to general business and professional life,” said the 1974 world champion and 1982 runner-up about Lewandowski’s unconditional desire to change this summer. Despite the contract, the Pole is pushing for a move to FC Barcelona until 2023. “It’s great for the reporters how things are going at Bayern Munich,” joked Breitner.
Felix Magath also thinks it is “better if the club makes the decisions before someone else does,” said the former Bayern coach (2004-2007) at the meeting of the German World Cup team from 1982, which met 40 years ago in Munich semi-final against France dramatically after penalties.
Magath is certain that “in the next few years things will not go as positively” at FC Bayern, “as they have in the last ten years.”
