Barcelona striker, Robert Lewandowski, has denied reports circulating in the media that he left Bayern Munich because of Erling Haaland.
Several reports had suggested that Bayern Munich’s interest in Haaland, who eventually joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund, was the driving force in Lewandowski seeking a move away.
However, speaking to ESPN, Lewandowski said: “No, that (departure) was nothing to do with Erling. I am the guy who, even if something’s not good for me — the truth is more important.
“I don’t want to speak about what exactly happened. But if the question is if the decision to move was because of him, no, I didn’t see the problem if he joined Bayern Munich.
He added, “But some kind of people doesn’t say to me the truth, say something different.
“And for me, it was always important to be clear, to stay true, and maybe for a few people, that was the problem.
“But in the end, this chapter is over and I open a new chapter in my life and a new chapter in my career.”
