Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski had reportedly revealed that he was angry with his teammates for failing to help him win the Bundesliga’s golden boot, and now, his agent has restated the 28-year-old’s unhappiness towards the club.
Lewandowski was leading the race to grab Bundesliga’s golden boot award with 30 goals heading into the final weekend of the season, but failed to score in Bayern’s 4-1 victory over mid-table Freiburg.
However, Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace on the final day of the season to beat Werder Bremen 4-3 in order to finish the season with 31 league goals, making him the top scorer.
The Polish striker’s agent, Maik Barthel, told Kicker (via Daily Mail): “Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach gave no call to help him in the last game to win the top-scorer title. He was disappointed as I have ever seen him before. He really hoped that the team support him proactively.”
The highly rated striker, who admitted that he felt ‘angry’ and ‘disappointed’ with his team, was quoted as saying: “It does not hurt anymore, but it did at first.
“Maybe because I was not completely satisfied with the way my team helped me. Immediately after the last game, I felt anger. I was disappointed with my team. That was the feeling I had.”
Lewandowski has been named Bundesliga’s top scorer twice before, while this was Aubameyang’s first time. Moreover, the Gabon international’s tally of 31 goals this season is the second most scored by a player, after Gerd Müller’s 36 for Bayern Munich in the 1972/73 season.
