Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has slammed the Polish media and cleared the air over Lewandowski’s supposed move to Manchester United claiming the news are baseless.
It was widely reported in the Polish media last week after their 1-1 draw against Greece that Robert Lewandowski is set to move to Old Trafford this summer. “Lewy is going to Manchester United, Kuba (Jakub Blaszczykowski ) also somewhere in England, and Piszczek to Real,” the Poland coach Franciszek Smuda was quoted as saying to the Polish media in pre match conference.
This news added further fuel to the uncertainty looming over the Dortmund striker’s future but the club has now come out and quashed them.
“It does not matter if we are to receive bids.
“I have said for weeks that Robert will be back in training with our club after the Euro 2012 and his holiday leave. And this is what will happen,” the club chief executive said.
Blasting the Polish media for reporting false news and creating unnecessary alarm among the Dortmund fans, Watzke added, “I am sick of these speculations. I really don’t care what the rumours are in the media of Poland.
“I have a detailed knowledge of media in Poland and therefore I know how I have to classify those reports”.
However, the chief executive of the Bundesliga champions refused to pin the blame on Smuda for the event. He is confident that the Polish coach’s comments were distorted by the media and taken out of context.
“I am going way back with Smuda for years. We have a good relationship. I do not think he has said things like that,” he added.
