Lewandowski Reveals Dortmund Grudge

Robert Lewandowski revealed he has “a problem” with Borussia Dortmund CEO Aki Watzke for not allowing him to join German and European champion Bayern Munich. Speaking with Sky following Dortmund’s 4-2 German Super Cup win against Bayern Munich on Saturday, the Poland international said, “When I am on the field, I want to play well and score goals. That is the most important thing for me, no matter where I play.” However, he added: “I feel fine in the team, but with other people I do have a problem. That is a difficult issue.”

That statement appeared to be directed squarely at Watzke and sporting director Michael Zorc, who refused to allow the 24-year-old to move to Bayern this summer. Watzke, meanwhile, responded by telling Bild: “It’s obvious Robert is focused on me, but I need to make decisions for the good of the club. I can accept that Robert bears a small grudge against me.”
