Former European champion Matthias Sammer appeals to the fairness of Bayern fans on the imminent return of goal scorer Robert Lewandowski to Munich. “I expect people to show him respect. He deserves that,” Sammer said at a Prime Video appointment. Lewandowski will play with his new club FC Barcelona at the German record champions on the second group match day of the Champions League (13/9).

He “couldn’t understand it if he wasn’t given a friendly reception”, the former Munich sports director stressed. Lewandowski had “achieved extraordinary things and made history” at FC Bayern. He had also broken some of Gerd Müller’s records, “which nobody would have thought possible”. According to Sammer, this “must be the focus”.

The fact that Lewandowski is meeting his former club in the top flight, of all things, is “terrific”, said Sammer – just like Borussia Dortmund’s duel against Manchester City with Erling Haaland. BVB is “looking forward to the reunion. Football heart, what more do you want. And we are right in the middle of it.”
