In an interview with ESPN television, Lewandowski had criticized his former club’s behavior, saying there had been a lot of “politics” in that decision.
In his words: “What happened in the last few weeks before I left Barcelona was also political. The club tried to find a fight to justify my sale because it might have been difficult to explain to the fans.”
The Polish striker said “many lies” were being told about him and was convinced he still had the support of German fans despite this.
Lewandowski, who turns 34 in a few days, signed for Barcelona in exchange for almost €45 million and left Bayern after eight seasons in which he won as many league titles and a Champions League.
