Robert Lewandowski recently announced that he will be making the switch from Borussia Dortmund to archrivals Bayern Munich, thus becoming the second player in successive summers to do so. This follows Mario Gotze’s decision to leave the German club for Bayern Munich last season. Lewandowski has been linked heavily with a move to Bayern Munich amongst other top clubs across Europe. He will be out of contract at the end of the season, thus making him a very attractive proposition. He has been a key figure in Borussia Dortmund becoming the second best club in Germany over the last few years.
He was signed on a cheap from a Polish club several years ago and the 25-year-old has become one of the best in the world in recent times. He may not have the scoring record of Radamel Falcao or Wayne Rooney, but he is extremely hard-working and important to Borussia Dortmund’s style of football. The decision taken by Lewandowski to sign for Bayern Munich comes as a major blow to Dortmund, but its manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that no player is more important than the club.
He is confident that Dortmund can find a good replacement for Lewandowski, who has promised full commitment to his current club, in the summer.
“Players can always be bought by other teams, but the club Borussia Dortmund are bigger than any player. It’s all about having a good plan for the future. Things will go on, I have no doubt about that. Robert’s decision is perfectly fine with us. We knew about his decision to leave for quite some time. Robert has never looked as if he wasn’t focused on Dortmund. That his next club is official now is perfect timing,” said Klopp, whose team have struggled in the Bundesliga this campaign.
