BERLIN, January 6 – Robert Lewandowski attempted to reassure Borussia Dortmund fans on Sunday that he is fully committed to their Bundesliga ambitions despite having already agreed to move to bitter rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
The Polish international took to social media to tell supporters that he will “give everything to BVB (Dortmund)”.
“I want to address you directly. I have six months left here during which we all have the objective of achieving together,” wrote the 25-year-old who is the joint top-scorer in the Bundesliga this season with 11 goals.
“Even if some of you do not agree with my decision, I hope to have your support. I will give everything for BVB.”
Lewandowski, who was back in training with Dortmund on Sunday watched by around 200 fans, had a deal with the club only until June.
“We have known for a long time that Robert will be playing for another club in the summer. The confirmation of the transfer changes nothing,” said Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp.
