Robert Lewandowski has once again called on his club to invest in the transfer market in order to remain at the top of the sport.
In September Lewandowski called on Bayern Munich to sign more world-class players if they want to compete at the top of Europe and said that he believes money and success are now more important than loyalty in football.
Speaking at the end of last week he said, “We shouldn’t delude ourselves. Each club needs to get a top player every two or three years to refresh the team, to bring some new blood, new quality.”
Bayern are hoping for a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title this year and have managed to turn things around since the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti. Jupp Heynckes was called in as an interim coach and since then they have moved four clear at the top of the league table after four consecutive wins. The team has also progressed to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
After reaching the round of 16 of the DFB Pokal Lewandowski said, “At this point we really have a good team, but it is known that players are getting older. We are succeeding [in replacing them] today because we have a young Josh Kimmich, who is really good at his new position and shows that a young player can be a replacement for such an experienced and wonderful one as Philipp Lahm.”
In regards to his own future Lewandowski said that he would not be moving and said his priority is next year’s World Cup.
The Poland captain was the first player to score 16 goals in a European World Cup qualifying game and finished as the continent’s top scorer, “The tournament is so important that no one will think about changing club in that time,” he said.
