Thugs steal Lewandowski Porsche tyres

LEWANDOWSKI-RAMOSBERLIN, February 11- Borussia Dortmund’s Bayern Munich-bound star striker Robert Lewandowski has fallen foul of thieves after all four tyres were stolen from his luxury Porsche, which was also damaged.

Lewandowski’s Dortmund are at Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday in the German Cup quarter-finals, but the Poland star’s car problems came after he scored twice in Borussia’s 5-1 league win at Werder Bremen last Saturday.

Reports in the German media say the 25-year-old had the tyres stolen from his Porsche Cayenne GTS, which costs around 90,000 euros ($123,000) and was parked outside his Dortmund home, with only bricks left to keep the car off the ground.

Lewandowski’s car was tipped forward during the suspected prank, badly damaging the front brakes.

The high jinx will not be cheap.

A brand-new set of winter tyres will cost around 2500 euros for Lewandowski, who is reported to earn up to four million euros at Dortmund and local police confirmed they have received a complaint for the missing tyres.

Dortmund fans are suspected of carrying out the attack after the Poland striker fell out with supporters when he announced in January that he would be joining rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season, ending weeks of speculation.

Lewandowski’s Dortmund contract expires in June and he leaves for Bayern on a free contract having scored 24 league goals in 31 league games last season, plus 10 in last season’s Champions League, as Dortmund lost to Bayern in the Wembley final.

This is not the first time Lewandowski has run into trouble with Dortmund fans.

Three weeks ago, he was investigated by police after he was alleged to have struck a teenage Dortmund fan who showed him the middle finger.

Lewandowski is the latest Dortmund player to leave for Bayern after Germany midfield star Mario Goetze joined the European champions after actioning a 37 million euros ($50.5m) release clause in his contract last season.
