Leon Goretzka is also displeased with the ongoing excitement surrounding Robert Lewandowski. On Tuesday, the international therefore formulated an appeal – to his teammate and FC Bayern.

Robert Lewandowski does not want to accept that FC Bayern does not want to let him go this summer. Only on Tuesday, the goal scorer from the Polish national team sent new clear messages towards Säbener Straße and further fuelled the matter.

Leon Goretzka finds it all too much. “It doesn’t help at all if I add my two cents now,” the international said in Herzogenaurach on Tuesday – after all, it is already being “discussed by enough people”. There was, however, one message he wanted to get across.

“I believe,” Goretzka said, “that overall this was an incredible success story for both FC Bayern and Lewy. And just to pay respect to this story, I would be happy if both sides took a bit of emotionality out of it and tried to find a good solution for everyone involved.”
