Thread Details Robert Lewandowski's First Day Back At Bayern Munich, He Doesn't Want To Be There
| Last updated
A detailed thread on Robert Lewandowski's first day back at Bayern Munich has been published and it's evident that the Poland captain desperately wants out.
Lewandowski has been heavily with a €50 million move to Barcelona and has communicated his desire to leave Bayern after eight trophy-laden and goal-heavy campaigns.
Nothing has materialised as of yet and so the former Borussia Dortmund striker returned to training with Bayern on Wednesday.
German outlet BILD did a full breakdown of Lewandowski's behaviour in what they describe as "a listless session".
- @BILD describes Robert Lewandowski's first training with the team today: The Pole put in a listless session. His body language was clearly showing that he wants to leave. Firstly, he arrived late to the meeting point, then was the last to appear on the pitch pic.twitter.com/FimxtrslZb— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) July 13, 2022
Lewandowski turned up at Säbener Strasse, Bayern's training ground, in his Audi but was six minutes late.
Normally the 33-year-old would be one of the first players on the training pitch but with his head clearly elsewhere, he was the very last player on this occasion.
10.31am was when Lewandowski, wearing the new white and gold away strip, strolled onto the surface.
He ended up starting all training exercises last, without "100 per cent commitment" and with "sagging shoulders".
Lewandowski was the last to start all training exercises. He completed them but never with 100% commitment. He hardly spoke with his teammates. Only Leon Goretzka often spoke to Lewandowski today and Jamal Musiala engaged with him in some jokes pic.twitter.com/cZ6PMXqSze— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) July 13, 2022
Lewandowski's body language was off and he is said to have barely spoken to his teammates - only chatting to Leon Goretzka and Jamal Musala.
Worryingly, he did not have a single conversation with manager Julian Nagelsmann. As published pictures show, he was not interested whatsoever when the German coach was giving a talk to his players.
Stood on the outside, he regularly looked away and stretched his thighs.
There was no conversation with Nagelsmann either. When the coach gave his speech to the team, Lewandowski looked uninterested, stood on the outside and often looked away pic.twitter.com/sf76qBrCVn— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) July 13, 2022
During the practice match, Lewandowski was in the A team. He didn't properly go for the ball and didn't score. After his team lost, all players in the losing team had to do push-ups as a sort of punishment, Lewandowski didn't pic.twitter.com/JC4OIQutof— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) July 13, 2022
After fitness drills, Bayern played a practice game and Lewandowski, playing for the A team, didn't find the net once.
He is accused of not "properly going for the ball" but the worst of his antics came afterwards.
The losing side, wearing the bibs, were instructed to do press-ups as a punishment but Lewandowski didn't fancy it. Instead, he simply helped himself to a cold beverage.
Lewandowski wasted no time waiting around following training and was swiftly off and out 22 minutes after the session finished.
It's reported that Nagelsmann and the squad are not sure how to deal with their wantaway talisman but the chances of him playing for Bayern again look slim.
It was a different story for new signing Sadio Mane, however. The Senegal star turned up to the club's training base '109 minutes' before the start of the session and stayed for 'more than six hours'.
